I will be preaching from the book of Proverbs shortly, so I went looking for hymns that sing of the fear of the Lord. Strangely, I did not find many that deal explicitly with this biblical truth. There are many hymns that touch on aspects of the fear of the Lord, to be sure, since such a deep truth cannot help but connect to so many facets of Christian existence. But I did not find many that meditate directly upon the fear of the Lord. If the fear of the Lord is truly "the soul of godliness," as it has been called, then why do we not dwell upon it in song? Surely the Psalms set a good pattern for us here, as they regularly bring up the fear of the Lord.
Does anyone have some good suggestions for hymns that sing of the fear of the Lord?
