Why should I fear the darkest hour

1
Why should I fear the darkest hour,
Or tremble at the tempter’s power?
Jesus vouchsafes to be my tower.
  Jesus my tower!
2
Though hot the fight, why quit the field?
Why must I either fly or yield,
Since Jesus is my mighty shield?
  Jesus my shield!
3
When creature comforts fade and die,
Worldlings may weep, but why should I?
Jesus still lives, and still is nigh.
  Jesus is nigh!
4
Though all the flocks and herds were dead,
My soul a famine need not dread,
For Jesus is my living bread.
  Jesus my bread!
5
I know not what may soon betide,
Or how my wants shall be supplied;
But Jesus knows, and will provide.
  Jesus provides!
6
Though sin would fill me with distress,
The throne of grace I dare address,
For Jesus is my righteousness.
  My righteousness!
7
Though faint my prayers and cold my love,
My steadfast hope shall not remove,
While Jesus intercedes above.
  He intercedes!
8
Against me earth and hell combine;
But on my side is power divine;
Jesus is all, and He is mine!
  Jesus is mine!

I thank You Lord that You will supply all my needs and I don’t have to fear because You are all! You give me tears of joy. Hallelujah!!
