Hello Fear!

Hey, Mr. Fear!
Posing as the Lord strong and mighty
Soft is my tender heart
Easily can it be broken
Make not my mind a battle field
It’s already a field for fallen soldiers

Hello Fear!
I see you’ve been lurking around
The deep corners of my mind;
Your wickedly carved claws digging
Desperately into every faith I have left

You keep trying relentlessly
To make me fall flat on my face
I wonder why you keep coming around
Oh! I guess I have to keep hammering it in;
How that my savior already defeated you
Leaving you as a powerless tiny sham!

There’s a sword I’ve found so sweet
And in it my power to defeat lies
With my tongue I pull down roofs, bring forth life, still strong storms
This is my CV, it’s safe you flee

Away from my entirety
Out into the pit where you belong
I bid you, flee!
That my mind may embrace rest
And this heart nurture the seed of faith

I speak with no sense of humility;
Out from this vicinity!
My belly is meant to bring forth living waters
If you come as a flood, a standard awaits you!
Oh Fear, I say be dispelled!
