Christ is my Rock (I Know a Man who Loved to Live Free)

This hymn was written by Medical Mission Sister Miriam Therese Winter, and first published in 1965.

 It was included in the album I Know the Secret.

It is inspired by Matthew 7:24-27, which describes house-building approaches, and parallels them to the spiritual life.

Chorus:
Christ is my Rock, my Refuge, my Stronghold,
...
Christ is my Rock, the root of my soul’s recreation.

Verses:

1  I know a man who loved to live free.
He pitched his tent by the side of the sea...

2  I know a man who loved to live high.
... castle near up to the sky....

3  I know a man, a cool one to know.
... out of ice and of snow....

4  I know a man who build out of straw ...
