TAKE OFF THAT CLOAK OF FEAR (Song Lyrics)

duck duck

Are you wearing a cloak of fear
The one that binds you to itself
Replace it with the cloak of peace
And feel the freedom for yourself

For God has not given to you
Fearful spirits of any kind
But in sweetest mercy, He gives
Spirits of power, love, sound mind

Chorus
Use the word of God
His infallible Sword
To cut yourself free
Throw it off
Throw it off
It doesn’t belong
To a child of God
To a child of God like thee
Like thee
To a child of God like thee

So stand on His word, don’t let go
Drink life offered, amazing grace
Lay on green pastures by still stream
Soon you’ll see the smile on His face

Cling to the Solid Rock so firm
Witness through the storms that will come
Waves of fear will try to destroy
And leave you feeling oh! so numb

Chorus
Use the word of God
His infallible Sword
To cut yourself free
Throw it off
Throw it off
It doesn’t belong
To a child of God
To a child of God like thee
Like thee
To a child of God like thee

Believe His promises always
He will never leave or forsake
He gave His all at Calvary
So you, His gifts of grace could take

So throw off that dark cloak of fear
Open wide your arms, lift them high
Be clothed in peace, not worldly peace
And on wings of peace you will fly

Bridge
No more burden, no more pain
No more feeling burden’s shame
Let His warming love embrace
Breathe in freedom’s perfect place
Just take off that cloak of fear
Throw away that cloak of fear

Chorus
Use the word of God
His infallible Sword
To cut yourself free
Throw it off
Throw it off
It doesn’t belong
To a child of God
To a child of God like thee
Like thee
To a child of God like thee

2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

  1. I love this song, dear Liana! The image of fear as an old cloak we can cast off is brilliant! We are children of God, for Christ our Savior has bought our victory and adoption with His spotless blood. The book of Revelations says “They overcame by the word of their testimony and by the blood of the Lamb.” Your song is one we should sing every morning & evening, declaring our freedom from this often debilitating hindrance to the work God wants to accomplish in every believers life. Psalm 34 declares, “I sought the Lord and He heard me and He delivered me from all my fears.”
    God bless you, dear sister as you continue to share what the Holy Spirit writes upon your heart to encourage His children! You are a precious treasure in Christ’s Body.
    Love, Suzanne xxx

    1. Yes ugly. And deceiving. Keeps us trapped and believing that this is the life for us, that there is no escape. Praise God, He has not given us the spirit of fear. It is from the enemy. Full stop! and we have the victory in Christ Jesus. We are enveloped in the spirit of peace even amidst the storms.
