Scarecrow

by Mark Weinrich

Fear is a straw-filled man
with no power to walk or stand.

Yet we give this scarecrow breath,
when fear creates the threat of death.

Why do we cower before this bluffing fool
missing the peace of God’s faithful rule?

God has promised He’s always near
with Him there is nothing to fear.

For He loves to give unfailing light
a fear-consuming faith through Christ.
