Christ My Song - 1180
Life nor Death shall us dissever - Fifth Sunday after Easter (Reginald Heber/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Fifth Sunday after Easter.
1. Life nor Death shall us dissever
from his love who reigns for ever:
will he fail us? Never! never!
when to him we cry!
2. Sin may seek to snare us, snare us,
Fury Passion tear us! tear us!
Doubt and Fear, and grim Despair, their
fangs against us try;
3. But his might shall still defend us,
and his blessed Son befriend us,
and his Holy Spirit send us
Comfort ere we die!
Reginald Heber, Heber's Hymns, 1870, 45.
