They're both grammatically correct. You can confirm the expressions in published books: "lest he fail" https://www.google.com/search?q=%22lest+he+fail%22&btnG=Search+Books&tbm=bks&tbo=1 "for fear that he should" https://www.google.com/search?q=%22for+fear+that+he+should%22&btnG=Search+Books&tbm=bks&tbo=1 However, they're both seriously archaic in style, or at least highly formal.

He worked hard lest he should fail. He worked hard for fear that he would fail. The first sentence seems a bit off, but I can't figure why.
