Christ Alone

Album: Edens Edge (2012)
  • When I fly off this mortal earth
    And I’m measured up by depth and girth
    The Father says now what’s he worth
    May he see Jesus death and birth

    Don’t measure me by dollar signs
    Or bricks and mortar you may find
    By Christ alone will I be found
    Worthy of that golden crown
    Worthy of that golden crown

    The value of this life I’ve lived
    How did I love, did I forgive
    Where did my treasure truly lay
    How did I start and end each day

    Don’t measure me by battles won
    Or some good deed that I have done
    By Christ alone will I be found
    Worthy of that golden crown
    Worthy of that golden crown

    Maybe a pauper or a king
    Have nothing or have everything
    The question begs, do you belong
    Do you sing a resurrection song

    Measured by the master’s hand
    On only one truth can we stand
    By Christ alone will we be found
    Worthy of that golden crown
    Worthy of that golden crown Writer/s: STEVE SMITH
