Here is F. W. Faber on the fear of the Lord as mentioned in Sunday’s sermon.

 

 

My fear of Thee, O Lord, exults

Like life within my veins,

 

A fear which rightly claims to be

One of love’s sacred pains.

 

Oh, Thou art greatly to be feared,

Thou art so prompt to bless!

 

The dread to miss such love as Thine

Makes fear but love’s excess.

 

They love Thee little, if at all,

Who do not fear Thee much;

If love is Thine attraction, Lord!

Fear is Thy very touch.
