American trio Selah are seasoned musicians who have been active for the past 22 years. They are known for embracing an eclectic array of genres in their worship – from gospel and folk to bluegrass and pop. Taken from their latest album, Firm Foundation, ‘Yet Not I But Through Christ in Me‘ sounds like a new, old hymn—something the church will be singing for a long time.

Lyrics:

What gift of grace is Jesus my Redeemer There is no more for Heaven now to give He is my joy, my righteousness and freedom My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus For my life is wholly bound to His Oh, how strange and divine, I can sing, “all is mine” Yet not I but through Christ in me

The night is dark but I am not forsaken For by my side the Saviour He will stay I lobar on in weakness and rejoicing For in my need His power is displayed

To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me Through the deepest valley He will lead Oh, the night has been won and I shall overcome Yet not I but through Christ in me

No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven The future sure, the price it has been paid For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon And He was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated Jesus now and ever is my plea Oh, the chains are released, I can sing “I am free” Yet not I but through Christ in me

With every breath I long to follow Jesus For He has said that He will bring me home And day by day, I know He will renew me Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus All the glory evermore to Him When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat Yet not I but through Christ in me

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus All the glory evermore to Him When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat Yet not I but through Christ in me Yet not I but through Christ in me
