Take This Fear


Brick by brick, I had built a wall,

stacked it high around my heart.

I did all I could to make it stand,

to protect me from what I couldn't see.

I got a little frightened,

when it began to fall apart.

Lord, take this fear and help me stand.

Without your strength I'm on sinking sand.

You are the only reason,

I've made it to where I am

Show me Your love and open my heart,

for others who need to see

what you've done for me.

I wanted to stand steadfast in my fear.

But I couldn't keep it from tumbling down.

I was scared of what it would reveal

I didn't want to know, I didn't want to feel.

I tried so hard to get this way.

I didn't want to let go,

of my false sense of security,

Lord, take this fear and help me stand.

Without your strength I'm on sinking sand.

You are the only reason,

I've made it to where I am

Show me Your love and open my heart,

for others who need to see

what you've done for me.
