I Will Boast in the Cross

I read over these song lyrics and I just can't help but to share it here. Of course, it's from Sovereign Grace Music on the Depth of Mercy album that was put out in the late 1990's. This song most certainly needs an update as the melody and beat takes away from the lyrics. 

Nonetheless, I just can't express enough how Christ and Cross-centered the songs are from this ministry.  How refreshing it is to hear songs that are not focused upon ourselves. 

Take a look at these words.....

I Will Boast in the Cross 

Verse 1
God did not call us because we were wise
Or gifted with riches and might
His choses one are the weak in this world
Who hope in His all-saving name
That He might receive all the praise

So I will boast in the cross of Christ
And I will glory in Jesus and His sacrifice
I will boast in the cross of Christ
It is the power  It is the wisdom of God
And my great ransom
The cross of Christ

Verse 2
Great is the mystery of God's sovereign ways
That flow from the depths of His grace
That He would give up His one precious Son
To bear all the cost of my sin
It is a wonder I can't comprehend

Repeat Chorus

Talk about remind us what our purpose is, Who made us and Who all the praise and glory is due.... It's certainly not any of us! 

Not to us, O Lord, not to us,
But to Your name give glory
Because of Your lovingkindness
Because of Your truth
Psalm 115:1
