Without Compromise...

Fear seeks to destroy us
With life’s Great Unknown
But it cannot move this;
God upon his throne

Hate, confused and hungry
Fights a losing chase
Love, composed and humble
Triumphs with its grace

Bitterness can break us
With its binding pain
Forgiveness can make us
Free and glad again

Anger and resentment
Chills us with dark spite
Kindness and contentment
Fills us with God’s Light

Disappointment, trouble
Seems, must have its day
But without these, people
Would forget to pray

Fear alarms, distresses
But it fades away
In the arms of Promise
God, our Hope and Stay

He is peace and pardon
Without compromise
Truth's established Guardian
In a world of lies

"The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; 
He will be with you. 
He will not fail you or forsake you. 
Do not fear or be dismayed."
