The world has only shown me pain and suffering, but thank God for Christ Jesus, this world is NOT all there is to existence...
Pat Meier (22 days ago)
So relevant today in this trying world of Christians being killed all over this world and no one speaks against it.  This song says it all we are here to tell others of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Wonderfully nostalgic!!! Right after being saved while in the military stationed at Ft. Hood, TX I heard this group. I think that they actually came to Ft. Hood. It was 1975 and they were still in the birthing stage of popularity and it was a very small group of listeners in a field as in a small revival meeting back then. I thought that they were great and their new non-traditional style and great musical ability really impressed me as a babe in Christ. This song didn't come out till the early 80's but I do remember how popular it was. Because of its anchorage in God's timeless Word it will always be so true and relevant.

I think, there for I am. I think for myself, no one else. My mission in life is to teach others right from wrong. And do I know wrong? I have only scars and thicker bones. Humans are all perfectly made to love and be loved.

This seems to become more true every day. Now in the U.S. and Canada we Christians are becoming more and more hated while other religions (and we know who they are) want to kill us for not being like them. This must mean our redemption draweth nigh, we must take courage in that!

“For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God...” “Instead, they were longing for a better country, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them”--Hebrews 11:10,16

Does anyone here recognize the photo in the first pictorial interlude? I am an Australian, and I live in the state of Victoria. Imagine my surprise when I saw a picture of the rock formation called 'The Twelve Apostles' situated off the south west coast! Its name is probably why it got into the video, lol. Interestingly, there was only nine stacks, now eight as one collapsed spectacularly in July 2005.

Jeffrry Hastings (3 years ago)
I use this song as my spiritual awakening. I lost my home, my dog Sunny, and my cat Humphrey. Sat, October 10th I lost my love of 14 years to addiction. Though painful, I am finding new hope and strength in Jesus, and in so doing I'm awakening to a renewed purpose, Gods purpose. "Blessed are you who weep, for now you shall laugh.". I could go on.... Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Evy's Dad6302 (1 year ago)
I am so sorry for your loss Jeffrey... God is going to reward you for not turning away from him is your deepest and darkest time... I have my own sorrow pain and misery that I'm dealing with and this gives me hope and never turning my back on my true and Heavenly Father

Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth... Col 3:2 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. John 15:19 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Philippians 3:20

I love this song. It was one of the first Christian songs I ever remember hearing, and it remains a favorite of mine. I noticed you had some Hillsong on your page, but I didn't see "Mighty to save". That is by far their best song (in my opinion). God Bless !
Amen'' I am truly a stranger and a pilgrim in this land. My heart hurts being here, as I see the evil and perverted things happening in this dark world. Pray Father Jesus come, and take us from this land, that where you are we shall be there also. God help us down here to be a light to the lost, that they repent and give their lives to you.''' I know Jesus that your return is very close now, and my testimony is to save all that be chosen. God Bless'''

This song really takes me back to a time when being save was everything. I think to much knowledge has cause us to for get that. Its not the do's and the don't it just Living for Him.
Myra Kubicek (5 years ago)
Amen. Today's church is about compromise. This is not what Jesus wanted, and is not what He taught. I think that is why so many people are having such a hard time finding the Lord today, because the church has lost track of Him as well. :(

We know this isn't our home.We are to tell the lost about God's son ,Jesus crucified for all mankinds sins,laid in a tomb,resurrected the third day.He's coming when you least expect him with the holy angels.The angels have golden,blonde hair with golden wings and wear white.

The GOOD NEWS is God lowered Himself and became a man.And that his name is Jesus.He walked on the earth as a man and showed the world that He is God.He died on a cross for our sins.He had victory over death when He arose from the grave.After that He ascended into Heaven.To all that believe in Him and follow Him will receive Eternal Life.You must be born again to see the Kingdom of God.Read Saint John 3:3

I'm not usually a fan of "lyrics" and "slideshow" videos; most of the ones I find tend to be full of typos and/or images that distract from, rather than enhance, the impact of the song. However, you did an excellent job with this one, Lily. God bless! 1 Peter 2:11

WhatNow858 (5 years ago)
Well, the Bible says that we are to be in this world but not of it. This world is full of enmity against God. Essentially, Adam and Eve gave over dominion to Satan when they disobeyed in he garden. So, we, as Christians, are behind enemy lines. But Jesus won the victory with His death, burial and resurrection and because is He was victorious, we are too. It is too easy to get comfortable here, a little used to the dark. This song reminds me this is not our home. Bless you.

this earth was created by Creator Jehovah God, so how can we not belong ? we do belong to this earth, and after the 7 year tribulation is over we'll rule with Jesus for 1,000 years on THIS earth. we don't belong to the WORLD SYSTEM (soon to be one-world system if ya know what I mean).

In 1988 I was arrested for selling LSD & rededicated my life to the Lord. The guy I got arrested with and I were out in his car listening to this song and saw 3 crosses & a dove in the clouds...God's promise to us! Will never ever forget this song, accordingly! I wrote about this in my blog, check it out, search for Something by Juliana

I believe it's better to me than even when I listened to it when it first came out. So biblical and great craft of songwriting. That whole project is still one of the greatest classics of all time. It is eternal for it speaks of eternal purpose and destiny of the believer. God bless you for posting this timeless message.
