Scripture Verse

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39


Words: From the Scot­tish Pa­ra­phras­es, 1781.

Music: Win­ches­ter Old, The Whole Book of Psalmes, by Tho­mas Est, 1592 (🔊 pdf nwc).


The Sav­ior died, but rose again
Triumphant from the grave;
And pleads our cause at God’s right hand,
Omnipotent to save.

Who, then, can e’er di­vide us more
From Je­sus and His love;
Or break the sac­red chain that binds
The earth to Heav’n above?

Let trou­bles rise, and ter­rors frown,
And days of dark­ness fall;
Through Him all dan­gers we’ll defy,
And more than con­quer all.

Nor death, nor life, nor earth nor hell,
Nor time’s de­stroy­ing sway,
Can e’er ef­face us from His heart,
Or make His love decay.
