Corrie Ten Boom knew untold suffering in the German Concentration Camps in Auschwitz. Her sister died in the camp, but Corrie’s life was spared. Many years later Corrie would exclaim, “There is no pit SO deep that CHRIST is not deeper still.”
Ms. Ten Boom and her sister were in the camp because they were caught hiding Jews from the German military. Consequently, they wound up in the camp even though what they were doing was right in the sight of God.
Annie Lobert’s experience was a different story. WAY different. However, she can now exclaim with Corrie Ten Boom that NO pit is so deep that Christ is not deeper still.
I wanted to share Annie’s testimony with you today, along with the words to a hymn that could truly categorize her experience. You can watch her testimony by clicking on her name here: Annie Lobert
All I Have Is Christ
I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way.
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave.
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will.
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still.
But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross.
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace.
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life
Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me.
Oh Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose.
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You.
