my favourite things/ Your love O Lord endures forever

Your love O Lord endures forever
What shall separate us from the love of Christ
I am holding tight
I dare not let go
what is there in this world
to give hope
when there is death
What is there to give hope
when there is failure
when sickness
and despair
and sink one down
to the depths

and then these words

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 created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 8:38,39)

There is hope
marvelous hope
a never dying hope
an unquenchable flame
getting rid of the dross
the imperfections that we don't need
His grace is not hurtful
We will not be separated from "Him" 
In a little while
we shall all be changed

I once saw my life go by me 
all my days in an instant
a twinkling 

Jesus was at my side 

He did not condemn
He did not judge

He did not point to my sin
I stood with Him ... and saw my life

there was no sorrow in watching

He said I just wanted you to see
that I was always with you

I am always with you

I want you to know that
nothing will ever change that

I was fifteen

crashed with a snowmobile
broken but not crushed

in an instant He taught me all I ever needed to know
He will never leave me
I will never be alone
I will always be loved
I may be broken but never crushed
nothing will separate me from His love

not ever
not sadness
not death 


It will all pass
Your Love O Lord endures forever 

and in this embrace 
in which You hold me
I will always be safe 

the love of God
