Catch a rising fear …
[Continuing the Sunday song series]
Catch a rising fear,
– they suddenly appear,
– transform them into prayer to pray.
Fiery darts come flying,
don’t give way to fretting, –
pick those darts up right away.
Don’t let them lie there
spreading their pollution, –
search out each one, –
and change them into
cries of supplication
with trust brought to God’s throne. – So
don’t just turn them over,
take them to the Saviour,
turn your worries into prayer.
Thinking through things merely,
cannot help completely –
leaves you still with fears to bear.
Don’t let your heart be anxious,
do not worry,
make your request
well-known to God, your
burden let him carry –
you will be comforted and blessed. – God’s
peace will guard and bless
your heart and mind in stress –
amazing peace for those who pray –
in Christ they’re counted righteous
their prayers are efficacious,
and keep their hearts in peace each day, –
and keep our hearts in peace each day.
(re Philippians 4:6,7) to the tune: of ‘Catch a falling star …’
