Fear and Love.  Deut. 10. 12, 13;  Prov. 23. 17

J. Needham                         C.M.

Fear is a grace which ever dwells
With its fair partner, love;
Blending their beauties, both proclaim
Their source is from above.

Let terrors fright the unwilling slave,
The child with joy appears;
Cheerful he does his Father’s will,
And loves as much as fears.

Let fear and love, most holy God,
Possess this soul of mine;
Then shall I worship thee aright,
And taste thy joys divine.
