All I Have Is Christ

I sang this song in church this morning, and it was such a blessing to me. Sovereign Grace Music aptly tells the story of the sinner who as been brought to life by the blood of Jesus. This song expresses the  true embodiment of the Christian life and faith. Surely we were all once lost and depraved, rebellious and unredeemed; but because of Christ’s sacrifice and grace, we are given spiritual life, hope, and power to bring Him glory. Who am I without Christ? A helpless rebel bounding toward the pit of hell. What am I without Christ? Lost, broken, perverted, dead. Aside from the Savior Jesus Christ, there is nothing that can save me. He is all I have, all that I am. And that’s why I sing hallelujah.

All I Have Is Christ

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

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

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
O Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
