Representative Text

1 Christ is my All, my sure Defence,
Nor shall my soul depart from thence;
He is my Rock, my Refuge too,
In spite of all my foes can do.

2 Christ is my All, and he will lead
My soul in pastures green to feed;
’Tis he supplies my every want,
And will all needful blessings grant.

3 Christ is my All! where should I go?
Without him I can nothing do.
Helpless and weak, a sinner great,
Yet in his righteousness complete.
