Metronome of Mercy!

 I need to listen to this song on a regular basis; it keeps me grounded!

 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

How kind, the promises of God
His Word consoles our dread with cheer
Unknown is not a cruel rod
Nor does it paralyze with fear
Because we sense His presence near

How faithful is the Word of He
Who never leaves us or forsakes
But honors love’s humility
And grants exactly what it takes
To see us through life’s groans and aches

How perfect are the ways of He
Whose love no thought can comprehend
Or fathom with mortality
That without Beginning or End
With which each soul will soon contend

How righteous is the will of God
In spite of what we understand
Our numbered days on earthy sod
Are but the Throughway to a Land
Beyond time’s sorrow-stricken strand

How Changeless is the hand of He
Who rules this scope of day and night
Who was, IS and will ever be
The one true God of Hope and light
And after death, eternal life

How endless is I AM, then pray
For ears to hear and eyes to see
So we may find The Only Way
From death to life eternally
Through He who died for you and me
