Poems

Fear the Lord

by Shirley Chacko

We have not feared Thee as we ought,
Nor bowed beneath Thy awful eye,
Nor guarded deed, and word, and thought,
Remembering that God was nigh.
Lord, give us faith to know Thee near,
And grant the grace of holy fear.

We have not loved Thee as we ought,
Nor cared that we are loved by Thee;
Thy presence we have coldly sought,
And feebly longs Thy face to see.
Lord, give a pure and loving heart
To feel and own the love Thou art.
