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'll overcome
Oh, I could stop and count successes like diamonds in my hands
But those trophies could not equal to the grace by which I stand

[Chorus:]
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 do I glory
For only by His grace I am redeemed
For only His tender mercy
Could reach beyond my weakness to my need
And now I seek no greater honor in just to know Him more
And to count my gains but losses to the glory of my Lord

[Chorus:]
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. All that you could ever possible ask for and need is in chris alone. And once we as his people begin to really believe and acknowledge that, then we wil rejoice because we will know that he has always been here for us and for all this time everything has always been in christ alone.

    In christ alone our hope is found. He is our strength beyond our weakness
    he is our source of hope and god saving power
    he is our glory and our victory to overcome. In this life christ power to forgive us and save us from our sins. No guilt of sin or fear of death but the power of christ
    our glory and our song

    I heard this on KLOVE the other week and cannot get it out of my head although I could only remember a few key phrases with the tune. It has become my theme song now as I struggle with losing a good friend to cancer, facing great difficulty at my work. I am so glad to have found it online. I opened up other versions I guess but this was the only one that had the parts I remembered. Thank you so much! T
