We have an inner life; that’s for our daily life

We have an inner life; that’s for our daily life;
That’s for the meeting life—just Christ!
We’ll live the inner life; we’ll have the daily life;
We’ll see the meeting life—that’s just the church.
Christ is our inner life; He’s in our spirit now;
Not far away from us—He’s right inside!
And as we turn to Him and take Him as our all
He will become in us our inner life.
Out from our inner life will come our daily life,
And all our living be filled up with Christ.
Then as we live by Him, He lives His life in us,
And He becomes to us our daily life.
The real experience of Christ in daily life,
Will fill the meeting life with Christ Himself.
Not empty forms and such, but Christ will be so much;
And we will see Him here as the meeting life.
Without the inner life there is no daily life,
There is no meeting life, there is no church!
Christ as our inner life, Christ in our daily life
Will make the meeting life new and glorious!

I love this hymn. Try singing it during your day & it becomes your experience. Oh, Christ is our inner life & we live the church life in our daily life & our meeting life. I enjoy the tune very much. Thank you for this hymn.

A new tune would be great! But the old tune is wonderful!

Hallelujah! For our new life!
