New Living Translation (NLT)
37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Love reigns within the heart
Defends against hate’s fiery darts
Holds at bay deep loneliness
Ends the pain we all possess
Speaks to us when we are sad
Comforts when our world goes mad
Wraps us in protective shells
When loved ones say their last farewells
Lingers still when we’re alone
When all the others have up and gone
Yes, Love still reigns within the heart
God moved in and will not depart
