In Christ Alone (I Place My Trust)


C – – – – – F – x2

Verse 1:


In Christ alone will I glory

       G                F              Am

Though I could pride myself in battles won


For I’ve been blessed beyond measure

    Gsus               Am              G

And by His strength alone I’ll overcome

F                   G/B      C

Oh, I could stop and count successes

     Am       Gsus     F

Like diamonds in my hands

           Dm                     Am           

But those trophies could not equal

        Dm                G

To the grace by which I stand


    C/E     F                  C/E            

In Christ alone I place my trust

            Dm            G           C    Am

And find my glory in the power of the cross

          F      G           Em      Am

In every victory let it be said of me

     Dm                          G

My source of strength, my source of hope


Is Christ alone

Verse 2:

In Christ alone will I glory

For only by His grace I am redeemed

For only His tender mercy

Could reach beyond my weakness to my need

Now I seek no greater honour

Than just to know Him more

And to count my gains but losses

To the glory of my Lord
