Step Into His Footprints

Intensify my love for Thee,
Upon the misty shore,
Where Thou once walked with Divine footprints,
And left me desperately searching for more.

How can I follow Thee … at that,
Thy firmest plea of command?
Found in precious words of the Word,
(I need to see the way Thou hast taken),
To follow and there I’ll stand.

Help me Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
No fear given, no fear of any kind,
Clothed me so lovingly with priceless wonders,
Power, love and a disciplined mind.

‘For God gave us not a spirit of fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline.’ 2 Timothy 1:7 American Standard Version (1901)

‘There is no fear in love: but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath punishment; and he that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love, because He first loved us.’ 1 John 4:18-19  American Standard Version (1901)
