Why those fears Behold tis Jesus Holds




Why those fears! Behold 'tis Jesus
Holds the helm, and guides the ship;
Spread the sails, and catch the breezes
Sent to waft us through the deep,
|: To the regions :|
Where the mourners cease to weep.


Could we stay where death was hovering?
Could we rest on such a shore?
No, the awful truth discovering,
We could linger there no more:
|: We forsake it, :|
Leaving all we loved before.


Though the shore we hope to land on,
Only by report is known,
Yet we freely all abandon,
Led by that report alone,
|: And with Jesus, :|
Through the trackless deep move on.


Led by faith, we brave the ocean;
Led by faith, the storm defy;
Calm amidst tumultuous motion,
Knowing that the Lord is nigh:
|: Waves obey Him, :|
And the storms before Him fly.


Rendered safe by His protection,
We shall pass the watery waste,
Trusting to His wise direction
We shall gain the port at last;
|: And with wonder :|
Think on toils and dangers past.


Oh, what pleasures there await us!
There the tempests cease to roar:
There it is that those who hate us
Can molest our peace no more:
|: Trouble ceases :|
On that tranquil, happy shore.
