A Video to Watch: All I Have Is Christ, An Animation

Okay, so perhaps this would be better titled as a “A Song to Listen,” but that is neither here no there. Point being, the video is powerful as it puts Sovereign Grace’s words to the screen. Following Christ can be costly, but is well worth it. God looks upon our completely helpless state as we run headlong to the pits of hell, and brings us to the cross and the total absorption of our sin in the person of Christ. Should God not have loved us first, we would still be rebellion against His glory. Now all we know is grace.

I’ll stop rambling now. Lyrics say it all.

VERSE 1
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

VERSE 2
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

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

VERSE 3
Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
Oh Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
