Worship Wednesday – "Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me"

Jan 8, 2020 — Leave a comment

One of the things that I have focused on for the past several years at my church is to introduce new music that is grounded in God’s Word. That just makes sense, but there are some songs that the church has sung for years that are neither grounded nor rooted in scripture.

We should be singing biblical songs! Keith Getty made this statement several years ago at a conference I attended. He said, “We should sing our theology”. He is absolutely correct. We should sing what we believe.

I would like to challege every worship pastor, music director or anyone else that leads music to really look at the words and make sure that what you are leading and singing is based on scripture.

One such song that is grounded is today’s Worship Wednesday song entitled “Yet Not I But Through Christ in Me”. This song was written in 2018 by CityAlight. I hope you enjoy and worship Him today!

[Verse 1]
What gift of grace is Jesus, my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

[Chorus 1]
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh, how strange and divine, I can sing: All is mine!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

[Verse 2]
The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Saviour He will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed

[Chorus 2]
To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley, He will lead
Oh, the night has been won, and I shall overcome
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

[Verse 3]
No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave

I am excited to introduce this song to my church in the near future!
