Title: Fear Cannot Change Our Hearts
Meter: 6 6 6 6 D
Topic: fear, faith

1.
Fear cannot change our hearts
It holds but fleeting pow’r
Fear makes some act their parts
As they shrink and cower.

Though it may change our deeds
It does not change the mind
It is not how God leads
Nor how we peace will find.

2.
Fear cannot mix with light,
The Priesthood from it flees,
Those who bear its might,
Must flee it like disease.

No influence must be,
Exerted through our fear,
For all must then be free,
To be free agents here.

3.
Fear cannot us exalt,
This can but faith alone,
Faith gives the earth its salt
But fear is bitter sown.

It cannot bring forth fruit
It will not let us grow,
It can sweet joy uproot,
Unless we overthrow.
