Singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart…

~ Colossians 3:16 ~ 
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, 
teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom,
singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 
with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

One of the ways the word of Christ continues to dwell within us is through the teaching of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.  I love songs that are theologically rich and that focus my heart and mind toward the triune God in worship and to the glories of the gospel.
Therefore, for your edification and mine, I am going to start posting a song every week.  I hope that you enjoy them.  The song for this week is "All I Have Is Christ" by Sovereign Grace Music. 

If you're not familiar with Sovereign Grace Music, you should check them out. Their music is filled with theological truth that will feed your soul.

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

Here is a Spanish version of it:

Aleluya mi vida es Cristo
Aleluya Jesús es mi todo.

En densa osucirdad vagué
perdido en el error
la senda bana del placer 
a muerte me llevó.

Siendo rebelde a tu voz
quisiste amarme asi
de no aver sido por tu amor
aún huiria de ti.

En rumbo a mi perdición
indifernete aún
de mi tuviste compasión
me guiaste a la cruz.

Y contemplé
tu gran bondad 
sufriste tu por mi
al tu morir en mi lugar 
tu gracia recibí.

//Aleluya mi vida es Cristo
Aleluya Jesús es mi todo//

Ahora Señor tuyo seré
y viviré por ti
tus mandamientos seguiré 
por tu poder en mi.

Usa mi vida o Señor
como lo quieras tú
y que seas siempre mi canción
mi gloria eres tú.

//Aleluya mi vida es Cristo
Aleluya Jesus es mi todo//

Aleluya mi vida es Cristo
Aleluya Jesús es mi todo.
