In Christ Alone

by: Michael English

In Christ alone will I glory

Though I could pride myself

In battles won

For I've been blessed beyond measure

And by His strength alone, I overcome

Oh, I could stop and count successes

Like diamonds in my hands

But these trophies could not equal

To the grace, by which I stand


In Christ alone

I place my trust

And find my glory

In the power of the cross

In every victory

Let it be said of me

My source of strength

My source of hope

Is Christ alone


In Christ alone will I glory

For only by His grace

I am redeemed

And only His tender mercy

Could reach beyond my weakness

To my need

Now I seek no greater honor

Than just to know Him more

And to count my gains but losses

And to the glory of my Lord


In Christ alone

I place my trust

And find my glory

In the power of the cross

In every victory

Let it be said of me

My source of strength

My source of hope

Is Christ alone
