fear of the lord

O Lord, we beseech you to deliver us
   from the fear of the unknown future,
   from fear of failure,
   from fear of poverty,
   from fear of sickness and pain,
   from fear of age,
   and from fear of death.
Help us, O Father, by your grace
   to love and fear you only.
Fill our hearts with cheerful courage and loving trust in you;
through our Lord and Master Jesus Christ.

Akanu Ibrahim

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
    Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
    for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
    but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
