Christ Is My Rock by Pdizzle(m): 9:13am On Sep 28, 2014
For the Catholics here, most of us are familiar with the hymn, though I've known it a long time, it was sang in church and the lyrics touched me, as a sinner engaged in so much frivolities. So i googled it up, and got to a site where i read comments about how people adore the song and how they were thought as kids a very long time ago. I'm definitely going to teach my kids. What do y'all think about it.

CHRIST IS MY ROCK

Christ is my rock, my refuge, my stronghold,
Firm as the tree's root that clutches the land.
He who has faith builds without worry, not like
the man who builds upon sand.
I set my house on a solid foundation
Christ is my rock the root of my soul's
recreation.
******

1) I know a man who loved to live "free",
He pitched his tent by the side of the sea.
It stood near the surf and was washed by the
spray
'Till one day a wave came and washed it away.
******

2) I know a man who loved to live high.
He built his castle near up to the sky,
Through summer and spring it stood pretty
well,
When winter winds whistled, it toppled and
fell.
******

3) I know a man, a cool one to know,
He built his house out of ice and of snow,
In chill isolation his night work was done,
But it melted away with the warm morning sun.
******

4) I know a man who built out of straw,
The flimsiest fellow that I ever saw,
One day a spark set it to flame,
And nothing was left to remember his name.

******
Christ is my rock, my refuge, my stronghold,
Firm as the tree's root that clutches the land.
He who has faith, builds without worry,
Not like the man who builds upon sand,
I set my house on a solid foundation,
Christ is my rock, the root of my soul's
recreation.

What has philosophy got to do with Religion? Religion enslave, philosophy enlightens. When both are mixed together in the bible, you become confused.
