75*. "No Separation"--Oh, My Soul

by A. Midlane
"No separation"—oh, my soul,
'Tis God who speaks the word,
So close the Spirit thee unites
With Christ thy risen Lord.
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. 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 8:38-39)
"No separation"—thou art His,
And His forevermore;
Upon the cross thy debt He paid,
And all thy judgment bore.
“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” (John 10:28)
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
"No separation"—precious word;
In it, my soul, be glad;
Loved with an everlasting love,
And one with Jesus made.
“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” (Jeremiah 31:3)
“But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” (1 Corinthians 6:17)
"No separation"—life nor death,
Things present nor to come,
Can part thee from His precious care,
Or rob thee of thy home.
"No separation"—linked with Him,
His glory—all is thine;
Oh, wondrous love, that thus could plan
A union so divine!
“Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word.” (John 17:20)
