Hymn : From Whence This Fear and Unbelief?

We sang this song in church during a September service at Orwell Bible Church. It is written by Augustus Toplady and is included in the hymnal, Hymns of Grace and Glory. After reading the words, you may want to invest in a hymnal that includes such assuring words. Read them and see what I mean.

From whence this fear and unbelief?
Hath not the Father put to grief
His spotless Son for me?
And will the righteous Judge of men
Condemn me for that debt of sin
Which, Lord, was charged on Thee?

Complete atonement Thou hast made
And to the utmost Thou hast paid
Whate'er Thy people owed
How then can wrath on me take place
If sheltered in Thy righteousness
And sprinkled with Thy blood?

If thou hast my discharge procured,
And freely in my room endured
The whole of wrath divine
Payment God cannot twice demand
First at my bleeding Surety's hand
And then again at mine.

Turn then, my soul, unto thy rest!
The merits of thy great High Priest
Have bought thy liberty
Trust in His efficacious blood
Nor fear thy banishment from God
Since Jesus died for thee.
