Afraid? of what?

Para misionari yang bekerja, membawa mereka ke tengah-tengah rakyat yang sering menjadi target para perampok dalam merampas perbekalan mereka, bahkan dalam situasi tertentu mereka dibunuh. Kasus seperti ini terjadi pada John dan Betty Sam pada tahun 1934. Secara ajaib, bayi perempuan mereka Helen Priscilla ditemukan selamat 2 hari kemudian.

Ketika John Vinson meninggal sebagai martir pada tahun 1931, kematiannya menginspirasikan rekannya E.H Hamilton untuk menulis “ Takut? Dari apa” Sebuah pusisi yang telah membawa penghiburan besar dan inspirasi ke banyak orang.

To Helen Priscilla

Ah, tiny babe, asleep within downy bed,

Knowing not your mother sweet and father brave are dead.

Dead, and yet alive and never more die

Called to service beautiful with God beyond the sky

We know not why Father left you here alone

“Alone, yet not alone” for He watches o’er His own

We only know that God your tiny life did will.

And Hi His purpose high will in your life fulfill


Afraid? Of what?

 

Afraid? Of what?

To feel the spirit’s glad release?

To pass from pain to perfect peace?

The strife and strain of life to cease?

Afraid of that?

 

 

Afraid of what?

Afraid to see savior face?

To hear His welcome and to trace?

The glory gleam from wounds of grace?

Afraid- of that?

 

 

Afraid of what?

A flash- a crash- a placed hear!

Darkness- light- oh, heaven’s art!

A wound of His a counterpart!

Afraid – of that?

 

 

Afraid? of what?

To enter into heaven’s rest

And yet to serve the master blest

From service good to service best?

Afraid- of that?

 

 

Afraid? Of what?

To do by death what life could not

Baptize with blood a story ploy

‘till souls shall blossom from the spot

Afraid- of that?
