अपश्यत् तन्मयं जगत्

आसीनः संविशंस्तिष्ठन् भुञ्जानः पर्यटन् महीम्।
चिन्तयानो हृषीकेशम् अपश्यत् तन्मयं जगत्॥१०-२-२४॥
—श्रीमद्भागवते दशमस्कन्धे द्वितीयोऽध्यायः
āsīnaḥ saṁviśaṁstiṣṭhan bhuñjānaḥ paryaṭan mahīm|
cintayāno hṛṣīkeśam apaśyat tanmayaṁ jagat||10-2-24||
—śrīmadbhāgavate daśamaskandhe dvitīyo’dhyāyaḥ

While sitting, sleeping, staying anywhere, eating or [while] walking here and there
Always thinking of [worrying in fear] Lord Krishna (one who controls everything), saw Him everywhere!

Thus, thinking of Krishna (albeit out of fear) all the time, Kamsa attained Moksham!

सर्वं वस्तु भयान्वितम्

भोगे रोगभयं कुले च्युतिभयं वित्ते नृपालाद्भयम्
माने दैन्यभयं बले रिपुभयं रूपे जराया भयम्।
शास्त्रे वादिभयं गुणे खलभयं काये कृतान्ताद्भयं
सर्वं वस्तु भयान्वितं भुवि नृणां वैराग्यमेवाभयम्॥३१॥
—भर्तृहरेः वैराग्यशतकम्
In enjoyment is the fear of disease, in a high lineage, the fear of a fall, in wealth, the fear of the king (income tax?),
In honour is the fear of humiliation, in strength, the fear of [stronger] enemies, in beauty the fear of old age,
In knowledge, the fear of [more learned] opponents, in virtue the fear of back-biters, even in body is the fear of death.
Everything on this earth is fraught with fear. He alone is fearless who has given up everything.
Just heard a similar version from Vishakha Hari’s lovely rendition of Prahlada charitram, quoting Prahlada:
विष्णो ते चरणाम्बुजम् अभयम्॥
O Vishnu! Thy lotus feet are my solace [making me fearless.]
She followed it with a lovely rendition of nannu viDachi (“Do not abandone me!” – Tyagaraja [as Prahlada] appealing to Rama) from  प्रह्लाद भक्तिविजयम् (Prahlada Bhakti Vijayam), and a discussion of Saptama Skandham from Srimad Bhagavatam.

मौनेन कलहो नास्ति

कृषितो नास्ति दुर्भिक्षं जपतो नास्ति पातकम्‌।
मौनेन कलहो नास्ति नास्ति जागरतो भयम्‌॥
kṛṣito nāsti durbhikṣaṁ japato nāsti pātakam |
maunena kalaho nāsti nāsti jāgarato bhayam ||
For the one who farms, there is no famine; for the one who prays (does japa), there are no sins. Silence keeps away quarrels and fear, by taking proper precautionary measures.
