Lyrics:

To win my heart with vision bright and fair.
In vain the world with all its craft has tried.
Harmless and weak its dazzling weapons are;
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side,
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side.

Come all ye proud ones of the earth, array
Your gathering hosts around me far and wide;
My heart is calm amid the loud affray.
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side,
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side.

Death hath for me no fears; its bitter pains
Shall never from my King my heart divide;
Faithful to Him till death my will remains
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side,
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side.

Though all the terrors of the last dread day
With earth and Hell together were allied;
Though Heaven and earth before me fled away
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side,
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side.

Jesu my Lord, my only Hope and Shield,
No power of ill before Thee can abide;
I trust in Thee upon the battlefield
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side,
I nothing fear with Jesus at my side.
