God Is for Us

Full Text

[Response:]
Strong is God's love for us, Alleluia.

R
We know that all things work together for good
for those who love God,
who are called according to God's purpose.
What then are we to say about these things?
If God is for us, who is against us?
God, who did not withhold God's own Son,
but gave him up for all of us--

Who will separate us from the love of Christ?
Will hardship, or distress,
or persecution, or famine,
or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors

nor angels, nor rulers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
in Christ Jesus our Lord. R

The musical settings followed four years later. Shortly after, the Gregorian Institute of America published Twenty-four Psalms… Go to person page >
