Sunday Worship Song

This is a new worship song we've been singing at church, and I was so excited when I found this video to share with you all. The things of this life are fleeting, friends. Nothing that we hold to in this life, on this side of heaven, is a guarantee. Jobs are lost, homes are foreclosed, back accounts are emptied..the list goes on and on. But, of this one thing we can cling to...our salvation through Jesus Christ. That is a wonderful gift, my friends, that can be never be lost or taken from us. Praise God for that! My favorite part of this song is, O Father, use my ransomed life in any way You choose. That is my prayer. It's a prayer of trust and obedience and one that I hope you will pray as well. Have a blessed Sunday!




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

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

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
