God Is So Gracious
God is so gracious, so good and so true;
Our eternal Father, He loves me and you.
He will bless us and keep us near Him forever –
Nothing on earth from His love can sever.
His praises ring out, joyous and free;
Removes the scales and helps us to see;
Filling us with peace, our minds and our hearts –
Love enters in, and sin soon departs.
Now a new creation through Jesus, the Son;
No more false idols, He’s the only one.
A sacrificial Lamb, the Creator of love,
All gifts and true blessings He sends from above.
Jesus is Lord of all, through eternity,
Holy and mighty and righteous is He.
Through Him we live, our sins atoned,
Glory to Him who sits on the throne.

Romans 8:35, 37-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
