Representative Text

1 Christ is courage, hope and health,
Wisdom, power, greatness, wealth;
Fount of life and light of love,
Spring of joy, all joys above.

Christ is power, Christ is peace,
Christ is sorrow’s sure release;
Master, Teacher, Shepherd, King—
Yes, our Christ is ev’ry thing.

2 Christ is comfort, calm and rest;
Bloom that makes the desert blest;
Cooling shade by wayside warm,
Rock of refuge in the storm. [Refrain]

3 Christ is Friend and help and home,
Wand’ring with us when we roam;
Camping round us by the way,
Comrade on the field of fray. [Refrain]

4 Christ is shelter, buckler, shield,
Mighty, tho’ all else may yield;
Vainly pierces death’s keen dart
Through the Christ, to reach my heart. [Refrain]
