What can I say if God is for?
Then who could ever be against;
Who could ask for anything more,
If evil becomes more incensed.
God did not spare His only Son,
But handed Him over to death;
To finish up what had begun,
Hanging on the cross till last breath.
So God will give everything,
To each of us as well as Christ;
For an inheritance to bring,
Causing Him to be sacrificed.
Who would be able to accuse,
That God already has chosen;
After sending Christ who rescues,
The sinful that have been frozen.
For God gave approval of them,
And the reason why Christ had died;
So God would not have to condemn,
Those who are willing to abide.
Christ had died and brought back to life,
With the highest place in Heaven;
And intercedes when plagued with strife,
As the Father has forgiven.
What will separate us from love?
That Jesus Christ allowed to flow;
Can hunger and thirst block thereof,
Or violent persecution bestow.
What would divide us from His love?
While being killed all day long;
Slaughter peace by killing the dove,
As false prophets steering them wrong.
The one who loves gives victory,
Conquering the evil and hate;
Not to be contradictory,
To non-believers and their fate.
Neither life nor death can persuade,
Nor the powers within this earth;
That would have blocked or delayed,
The love of God and priceless worth.
