My Worth Is Not In What I Own

We sang this song at the end of the message today.  Focusing on no coveting, there could be no better song that this one!

I am so thankful to God for Keith and Kristyn Getty and the songs they are writing for the Church.

Enjoy the video above and feast on the lyrics below.  Don’t miss the last stanza.  There have been few greater lyrics written than what is contained in that stanza.

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

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

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.

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

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


Two wonders here that I confess
My worth and my unworthiness
My value fixed – my ransom paid
At the cross
