When I Hoped, I Feared

(1951)

"When I Hoped, I Feared" is the ninth and final song of Otto Luening's Nine Songs to Poems of Emily Dickinson.

When I Hoped, I Feared
by Emily Dickinson


When I hoped I feared,
Since I hoped I dared;
Everywhere alone
As a church remain;


Spectre cannot harm,
Serpent cannot charm;
He deposes doom,
Who hath suffered him.
