Fashioned by His Fear

"Be of good courage… behave ourselves valiantly… and let the LORD do that which is good in His sight" (1 Chronicles 19:13).  "Thy hands have made me and fashioned me… They that fear Thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in Thy Word" (Psalm 119:73,74).  "The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil" (Proverbs 19:23).  "His Son… by Himself purged our sins… Let all the angels of God worship Him" (Hebrews 1:2,3,6). 

As we are walking in God's fear,
When trouble comes, we do not flee,
For we are sure that God is near;
By Him we shall do valiantly.

The Lord still fashions heroes thus
Who fear the Lord instead of men
In these last days, reminding us
That He will surely come again. 

The fear of God will mold our life
And we shall then be satisfied
When we have stood fast in the strife
To honor Christ who for us died. 

As objects, Lord, of Your compassion,
With all the angels at Your throne,  
We gather as with fear You fashion
Our hearts to worship You alone.
