All We Need is Christ!

All [the believer] can possibly need is treasured up in Christ!

He has no cross but Christ can bear it –

no sorrow but Christ can alleviate it–

no corruption but Christ can subdue it–

no guilt but Christ can remove it–

no sin but Christ can pardon it–

no need but Christ can supply it.


Lift up your heads, you poor, you needy, you disconsolate!

Lift up your heads and rejoice that Christ is all to you–


all you need in this valley of tears–

all you need in the deepest sorrow–

all you need under the heaviest affliction–

all you need in sickness–

all you will need in the hour of death and in the day of judgment.


Yes, and Christ is in all too.

He is in all your salvation–

He is in all your mercies–

He is in all your trials–

He is in all your consolations, and in all your afflictions

(Octavius Winslow, Morning Thoughts, July 10)
