What can separate us
From the love of God’s own Son?
Can hunger or hardship or danger or death itself
Separate us from His love?
I know that nothing can separate us
From the love of God’s own Son.
Not hunger or hardship or danger or death itself
Can separate us from His love.
We are assured of complete victory
Through the power of Jesus’ love.
Love that is greater than life and death
And greater than all things yet to be.
About This Song:
“Assured of Complete Victory” is based on Romans 8:35-39 and is dedicated to an old friend, Isaac “Iggy” Sahhar. Here’s the Scripture from the NIV:
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I’m the first to admit that the way the Bible puts it–no matter which translation you prefer–is more poetic and less repetitive than my version. But I needed a simpler way to state it and hope I’ve succeeded in staying true to the basic idea.
