Jesus Paid It All, was written in 1865 by Elvina M. Hall, a 47-year old, widowed congregant, who was listening to a church sermon and prayer and penned the words on the back of a hymnal at the Monument Methodist Episcopal Church in Baltimore, Maryland. She shared the lyrics with the pastor.

That same week the church organist, John Grape, shared some new music entitled, “All to Christ I Owe,” with the same pastor who thought the lyrics and song fit well together, and the song was published.

Isaiah 1:18
Come now, let us settle the matter, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

20. My soul will rest in your embrace.

Where Feet May Fail, by the Australian Worship band Hillsong United, tells the story, about Peter being called by Jesus to walk on the water. The disciple did so, but temporarily lost faith and started to slip down, when he called out to Jesus who immediately rescued him. This song was released in 2013 and has been sung every week in thousands of churches across the earth.

Matthew 14:29-3
And He said, Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, You of little faith, why did you doubt?”
