For many a year
I lived with my greatest fear.
Controlled by his power,
I used to cower
At the thought of leaving him.
But as my eyes became dim,
I had to make a choice
To listen to him, or another’s voice
Who was telling me
From this fear I had to flee.
So as God held my hand,
I made a stand!
I faced that fear, told it to go.
It stared at me, and it said “NO!”
Knees shaking, I dug in my feet,
I was determined it to defeat!
I stood my ground,
New strength I found,
To conquer fear’s intimidating frown,
And make it shrink,and back down.
And then with God’s power I overcame,
I crushed that fear in Jesus’ Name!
