Yesterday, I saw a friend had posted this video on Facebook. It was so good that I wanted to share it on my blog. It is an animated story set to the song, All I Have Is Christ. From the first time I heard this song, it has become one of my favorites. The main reason is the lyrics. They are so deep and meaningful and tell the story of my life (and yours). My favorite part of the song (and video) is at the end of the 2nd verse which says, "You bore the wrath reserved for me, now all I know is grace." Watch for it in the video.
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.
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.
Oh Father, use my ransomed life in any way You choose.
And let my song forever be My only boast is You.
