New Song: Now Why this Fear

At this Sunday's 7pm service we'll be introducing Now Why this Fear, yet another great song from Sovereign Grace.  Last week a gang of us from CCM went to (and hugely appreciated) their first Worship God UK conference.  They gave us plenty of great hints and tips to bring home, but far more encouraging than that was the way everything was so thoroughly centred on Jesus, and on his death on the cross for us sinners.  "Christ crucified" is what shapes all of their songs - as it should (1 Cor 2:2)

This song was one of our faves at the conference.  It updates some brilliant 18th Century words by Augustus Montague Toplady (gotta love that name) and makes them gloriously singable again today.

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?

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

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
