When I must cope with fear

 

My Lord, my God, 
When I must cope with fear,  

Help me to face it willingly, 
Like you.

My Lord, my God, 
When I must suffer pain,

Help me to meet it steadfastly,
Like you.

My Lord, my God, 
When I must know despair,

Help me to bear it faithfully,
Like you. 

My Lord, my God,
When I must pass through death,

Help me to let go trustingly,
Like you.
