Your Love Never Fails

Below are the lyrics to a song called “Your Love Never Fails” by Jesus Culture

Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails
I know I still make mistakes
But You have new mercies for me everyday
Your love never fails

You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning

And when the oceans rage
I don't have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails

Verse 2:
The wind is strong and the water's deep
But I'm not alone in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails

The chasm is far too wide
I never thought I'd reach the other side
But Your love never fails
You make all things work together for my good

We sang it in church this past Sunday and I felt quit overwhelmed by it.  I love the imagery of ‘the chasm is far too wide’ because we as Christians sometimes think that we should see it as only ‘appearing’ too wide, when it really isn’t -- but the truth of the matter is that sometimes the chasm is really far too wide and it’s only because of Jesus that we reach the other side.  Some things are impossible for us, but nothing is impossible for God…
