Found In Christ


Whatever things were gain to me
The things for which I paid a cost
For the sake of Christ they've come to be
Those things I now just count as loss

By any means to know Christ
This is of all-surpassing worth
Knowing Christ has much more value
Than any thing offered on earth

Now I can walk away, set free
From any thing I have possessed
Reckoned as rubbish so to gain Christ
For to be found in Christ is to be found blessed

To be found in Christ alone
Having no righteousness of my own
Comes by faith not law, So I stand in awe
Of the righteousness of Christ my cornerstone.

That I may know Christ
Resurrection power to apprehend
In the sharing of his sufferings is greater gain
To his death conformed, my knee I bend
So to his resurrection to attain.

No worthy deed we do can e're atone
We understand the God who gives
All that is found in Christ alone;
By his own righteousness we live

He made Christ to be sin for us
Who knew no sin, in this we trust
It is finished and done, so we can become
The Righteousness of God in Him
This is where the hope of glory begins and ends

Oh, to be found in Christ alone,
Having no righteousness of my own.
It comes by faith not law, So I stand in awe
Of the righteousness of Christ my cornerstone.
