Now Why This Fear?

Credits: Music, and alt. and additional words – Doug Plank

Original verses – Augustus Toplady (1772)

Verse 1

Now why this fear and unbelief?

Has not the Father put to grief His spotless Son for us?

And will the righteous Judge of men

Condemn me for that debt of sin

Now canceled at the cross?

Chorus

Jesus, all my trust is in Your blood

Jesus, You’ve rescued us

Through Your great love

Verse 2

Complete atonement You have made

And by Your death have fully paid

The debt Your people owed

No wrath remains for us to face

We’re sheltered by Your saving grace

And sprinkled with Your blood

Bridge

How sweet the sound of saving grace

How sweet the sound of saving grace

Christ died for me

Verse 3

Be still my soul and know this peace

The merits of your great high priest

Have bought your liberty

Rely then on His precious blood

Don’t fear your banishment from God

Since Jesus sets you free
