1 What shall separate us from a Saviour’s love?
Nothing ever shall, if we hold it fast;
Neither life nor death, nor present thing, nor past,
Not depths below nor heights above.
I am free from condemnation,
I claim a full salvation,
There’ll be no separation
I and Christ are one.
I am glad He sought and found me,
And threw His arms around me,
With love that shall surround me
‘Til life is done.
2 Life is life a boat upon a stormy sea,
Filled with trials too, oft by care beset;
But this blessed promise from the Word I get,
And I know it is meant for me. [Refrain]
3 O the best assurance, O what joy is mine,
When by faith I see what my Lord has done;
Not begotten, but adopted, I’m God’s son,
An heir with Christ thro’ grace divine. [Refrain]
