Romans 8:33–35 (Listen)

33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.1 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

Hymn: TLH 347, st. 1-3: Jesus, Priceless Treasure

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Jesus, priceless Treasure, 
Fount of purest pleasure, 
Truest Friend to me. 
Ah, how long in anguish 
Shall my spirit languish, 
Yearning, Lord, for Thee? 
Thou art mine, O Lamb divine! 
I will suffer naught to hide Thee, 
Naught I ask beside Thee. 

2. In Thine arms I rest me; 
Foes who would molest me 
Cannot reach me here. 
Though the earth be shaking, 
Every heart be quaking, 
Jesus calms my fear. 
Lightnings flash And thunders crash; 
Yet, though sin and hell assail me, 
Jesus will not fail me. 

3. Satan, I defy thee; 
Death, I now decry thee; 
Fear, I bid thee cease. 
World, thou shalt not harm me 
Nor thy threats alarm me 
While I sing of peace. 
God’s great power Guards every hour; 
Earth and all its depths adore Him, 
Silent bow before Him.
