O Love That Casts Out Fear


Ana Hernández wrote this bouyant call and echo song based on a text by 18th century hymn writer Horatius Bonar. Almost every phrase is repeated back by the congregation, offering a unique and powerful model for singing a strophic text without paper. 

Ana suggests using the piece as a sending song. It could also also be used as a gathering song or introit. 

"O love that casts out fear, 
O love that casts out sin,
Tarry no more without 
But come and dwell within.

True sunlight of the soul,
Surround us as we go;
So shall our way be safe, 
Our feet no straying know.

Great love of God, come in! 
Wellspring of heav’nly peace,
Spring up and never cease;
Spring up and never cease!"
