Oh precious thought
As I draw near,
My heart bursts forth in song
That drowns all fear.
Like Zachara's Spirit filled - rejoicing
I know the Dayspring from on high is near.
A Holy babe - yet in a stable born.
The wise men questioned Herod - and he was filled with fear.
He felt his Kingship threatened
By the baby Jesus - Mary held so dear.
This promised thing - foretold down thro the ages
Would bring a peace - dampened by many tears.
Oh precious Jesus - by all but few rejected.
Mary watched them crucify her son she held so dear.
Then as you cried "Father forgive them"
Those men were filled with fear -
But the thief had already found
A Saviour - so dear.
Thank you Jesus - for the flood you shed
And full pardon when to Thee we draw near.
Know the indwelling of Thy Holy Spirit
And perfect peace - which casts out fear.
