Why should I fear the darkest hour

Why should I fear the darkest hour,
or tremble at the tempter’s power?
Jesus is pledged to be my tower.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

2. Though hard the fight, why quit the field?
Why must I either run or yield,
since Jesus is my mighty shield?

3. I do not know what lies ahead,
from where will come my daily bread;
by Jesus’ grace I’m always led.

4. Though sin would fill me with distress,
the throne of grace I dare address,
for Jesus is my righteousness.

5. Though faint my prayers and cold my love,
my trust from God shall not remove
while Jesus intercedes above.

6. Against me earth and hell combine,
but on my side is power divine;
Jesus is all, and he is mine!
