What shall we say about these things?
If God is for us, who would curse;
Because of the goodness God brings,
No one could ever be adverse.
He who did not spare His own Son,
But gave Him up for all of us;
Change the lives for everyone,
To acknowledge their faith as thus.
How will He not be graciously,
All of these things so freely give;
Having a life so spaciously,
In His glory that we can live.
Who would charge against the elect,
Because it is God who justified;
He does not forsake or neglect,
Who witnessed of the crucified.
Who is to condemn of who has died,
After three days raised from the dead;
From the cross where His mother cried,
Then brought down after He had bled.
Who would separate from His love,
Shall distress, famine or the sword;
There is no peril from above,
To harm believers of the Lord.
We are being killed all day long,
Reckoned as sheep to be slaughtered;
Punished by a wrath if done wrong,
Gone away when we have wandered.
We have been more than conquerors,
Through Christ Jesus who has loved us;
Never to be as bolsterers,
Keeping the faith and hope as thus.
I am sure neither death nor life,
Nor angels, the powers to be;
Could ever have caused that much strife,
For making me too blind to see.
Height nor depth in all creation,
To separate from love of Christ;
Saving and giving salvation,
The reason He was sacrificed.
