Away with our fears

if you do not hear the tune, click here.

Away with our fears,
our troubles and tears!
The Spirit is come,
the witness of Jesus returned to his home.

Our Advocate there
by his blood and his prayer
the gift hath obtained;
For us he hath prayed, and the Comforter gained.

Our glorified Lord
has given his word
that his Spirit will stay,
and never again will be taken away.

Our heavenly guide
with us shall abide,
his comforts impart,
and set up his kingdom of love in our heart.

The heart that believes
his kingdom receives,
his power and his peace,
his life, and his joy's everlasting increase.
