Life nor Death shall us dissever
From his love who reigns for ever.

Life nor Death shall us dissever
From his love who reigns for ever.
Will he fail us? Never, never,
When to him we cry.

Sin may seek to snare us,
Fiery passion tear us,
Doubt and fear and grim despair,
Their fangs against us try:

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
