"Oh God"

By Dustin Kensrue—a song clearly inspired by Romans 8:35-39, which teaches that, even though we may be swallowed up by our circumstances, none of them can separate us from the love of God which is ours in Christ.

Recorded to accompany the Hope At Home sermon video for Sunday, April 19th, 2020.

Height nor depth nor anything else can pull us apart—we are joined as one by Your blood.

Romans 8:35-39 NKJV Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 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.

Verse 1:

In the valley, O God, You're near.
In the quiet, O God, You're near

In the shadow, O God, You're near.
At my breaking, O God, You're near.
You're near.

Chorus 1:

O God, You never leave my side.
Your love stands firm through all my life.

Verse 2:

In my searching, O God, You're near.
In my wandering, O God, You're near

When I feel alone, O God, You're near.
At my lowest, O God, You're near.
You're near.

Chorus 2:

O God, You never leave my side.
Your love stands firm through all my life.

Bridge:

Height nor depth nor anything else can pull us apart—we are joined as one by Your blood.

Hope will rise as we become more than conquerors through the One who loved the world

Height nor depth nor anything else can pull us apart—we are joined as one by Your blood.

Hope will rise as we become more than conquerors through the One who loved the world

Final Chorus:

O God, You never leave my side.
Your love stands firm through all my life.

O God, You never leave my side.
Your love stands firm through all my life.

To the praise of His glorious grace,
