Representative Text

1 What shall separate us
From the love that bought us?
Shall the pangs of anguish;
Which the cross hath wrought us?
Doubtings and distresses,
Fiery trials prove us;
Yet am I persuaded,
None of these shall move us.

Chorus:
We are more than conquerors,
More, yea, more;
We are more than conquerors,
More, yea, more;
We are more than conquerors,
We are more than conquerors,
We are more than conquerors
Thro' him that loved us.

2 Things to come or present,
Whatso'er betide us,--
Life nor death shall ever
From our Lord divide us;
Angels, powers, dominions,
These shall fall before us;
Clothed in his salvation,
With his banner o'er us. [Chorus]

3 Depths that are beneath us,
Heights that are above us,
Have no power to sunder
Since he stooped to love us.
Prince of our Redemption,
Sons to glory bringing,
Thou hast made from sinners
Victors, crowned and singing. [Chorus]
