May there be no room for scorn
Within my mind, dear One;
No trace of slight, or disregard,
But only thou, God’s Son.
May there be no room for hate
Within my heart, dear Christ;
No trace of spite, or bitterness,
But only sacrifice.
May there be no room for fear
Within my soul, dear Lord;
No trace of dread, or cowardice,
But only love outpoured.
Christ lives within you (Romans 8:10; NLT).
Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! (Matthew 5:44; NLT).
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:18; RSV).
