Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1742
Meter: Long Meter Double (8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8)
Away, my unbelieving fear;
Fear shall in me no more have place;
My Savior doth not yet appear,
He hides the brightness of His face;
But shall I, therefore, let Him go,
And basely to the tempter yield?
No, in the strength of Jesus, No,
I never will give up my shield.

In hope, believing against hope,
Jesus my Lord and God I claim;
Jesus my strength shall lift me up,
Salvation is in Jesus' name;
To me He soon shall bring it nigh;
My soul shall then outstrip the wind,
On wings of love mount up on high,
And leave the world and sin behind.
