All fear is past and only love is here.

1. 1All fear is past, because its source is gone, and all its thoughts gone with it. 2Love remains the only present state, whose Source is here forever and forever. 3Can the world seem bright and clear and safe and welcoming, with all my past mistakes oppressing it, and showing me distorted forms of fear? 4Yet in the present love is obvious, and its effects apparent. 5All the world shines in re­flection of its holy light, and I perceive a world forgiven at last.

2. 1Father, let not Your holy world escape my sight today. 2Nor let my ears be deaf to all the hymns of gratitude the world is singing underneath the sounds of fear. 3There is a real world which the present holds safe from all past mistakes. 4And I would see only this world before my eyes today.
