|A hymn written by W. Dickinson|
(1)HALLELUJAH! who shall part
Christ's own Church from Christ's own hear?
Sever from the Saviour's side
Souls for whom the Saviour died?
Dash one precious jewel down
From Immanuel's blood-bought crown?
(2)Hallelujah! shall the sword
Part us from our glorious Lord?
Trouble dark or dire disgrace
E'er the Spirit's seal efface?
Famine, nakedness, or hate,
Bride and Bridegroom separate?
(3)Hallelujah! life nor death,
Powers above nor powers beneath,
Monarch's might, nor tyrant's doom,
Things that are, nor things to come,
Men nor angels, e'er shall part
Christ's own Church from Christ's own heart.
