Who Gets The Glory When You Succeed?




Who gets the glory when you succeed?...when you're victorious?

In Christ Alone...this song reminds me to bring back all the glory to God in every victory and success in my life. Here's the lyrics:


IN CHRIST ALONE

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 overcome
Oh, I could stop and count successes
Like diamonds in my hands
But these trophies could not equal
To the grace, by which I stand

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 will I glory
For only by His grace
I am redeemed
And only His tender mercy
Could reach beyond my weakness
To my need
Now I seek no greater honor
Than just to know Him more
And to count my gains but losses
And to the glory of my Lord

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


May this song remind you too, that in every victory, let it be said of you, your source of strength, your source of hope, is Christ alone.
