Yet Not I but Through Christ in Me (Day 27)

The Shepherd’s Church

Another Sunday, another day worshipping with like-minded believers in Jesus! Since joining our church body in 2017, the Lord has blessed my heart with amazing-led worship and expository preaching. Today was another glorious, Christ-centered representation of what to expect when we are gathered around the throne of God! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! I am so ready! I cannot help but share with you the lyrics of one of the songs we joined our voices in singing. . .

It is titled: Yet Not I but Through Christ in Me

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

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

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

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

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

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated Jesus now and ever is my plea Oh the chains are released, I can sing, “I am free” Yet not I, but through Christ in me

With every breath I long to follow Jesus For He has said that He will bring me home And day by day I know He will renew me Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus All the glory evermore to Him When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat Yet not I, but through Christ in me

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat Yet not I, but through Christ in me Yet not I, but through Christ in me Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Words by Michael Farren, Rich Thompson, and Jonny Robinson
