MY WORTH IS NOT IN WHAT I OWN

  Lyrics

Verse 1
My worth is not in what I own
Not in the strength of flesh and bone
But in the costly wounds of love at the cross

Verse 2
My worth is not in skill or name
In win or lose, in pride or shame
But in the blood of Christ that flowed at the cross

Chorus
I rejoice in my redeemer
Greatest treasure, wellspring of my soul
I will trust in him, no other
My soul is satisfied in him alone

Verse 3
As summer flowers we fade and die
Fame, youth and beauty hurry by
But life eternal calls to us at the cross

Verse 4
I will not boast in wealth or might
Or human wisdom’s fleeting light
But I will boast in knowing Christ at the cross

Verse 5
Two wonders here that I confess
My worth and my unworthiness
My value fixed, my ransom paid at the cross

  Sample Introduction

“My worth is not in what I own, not in the strength of flesh and bone, but in the costly wounds of love at the cross.” Let us remember and rejoice that our worth does not come from who we are or what we have done but our worth is found in the cross of our Saviour. He alone satisfies, he alone we can trust.
