All I Have is Christ

Several people have commented on a song we sang recently on Sunday morning. It’s called All I Have is Christ by Jordan Kaulfin. I wanted to feature it here because (1) I think that is it well worth downloading and (2) the song is from Sovereign Grace Music which produces countless Christ-centered, theologically-rich worship music.

The song clearly tells a story that every Christian has to tell… the story of God saving a wretched sinner. The chorus echoes the words of Paul in Philippians 3- ‘But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.’

All I Have is Christ by Jordan Kauflin
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

  1. Thanks for sharing this Kevin. I’m always looking for new music to add to my iPod that I can use to worship and focus on the Glory of God. This song definitely does it. Thanks for your heart of worship and bringing us to the foot of the cross each Sunday morning.

  2. Love this song! Especially when I get to that simple chorus I nearly come out of my skin I am so filled with joy. I really think we could sing this song every week and I would never grow tired of it.

  3. loved it at T4G! I have been singing the chorus since I heard it.

    I wasn’t there Sunday at New Branch to sing it, but hopefully, will get the chance at another time.

    Thanks for your other post about hymns as well, they are certainly theologically rich and God glorifying.
