All Glory Goes to Thee

Me: the older brother Pharisee 
Basking in my righteous deeds
Filthy rags but to blind to see 

Obey the law as best as I could
Smile on my face like a good girl should 

I was dead 
Trying to save myself 
Trying to earn my salvation
Exhausting myself

No amount of good could save this dying breed
Only through Christ we are saved and His perfect righteous deed

Christ in all His glory, all his splendor 
Reached out to give his grace
Becoming like us, yet sinless  
Took on the ultimate disgrace 

The King of Glory
Perfect in all ways
Humbled himself to die
In the most excruciating way

Taking on my sin
To bring me life 
What love is this?
No words to describe

There's nothing I can do to earn salvation
It is all because of Christ's sacrifice and the power of His resurrection 

I repeat there's nothing you can do to earn salvation
It is the gift of God
So no one can boast, 
He alone brings salvation

Repent and believe 
We are all dead sinners in need of the King

His love is from everlasting to everlasting
His greatness we cannot comprehend
But if you are not found in Him
The wrath of God is your end

Thank you lord for Your grace
we see in a glass dimly
But one day 
Face to face 

Oh what a glorious day that will be
The day we see Christ 
in all of His Glory

Will you be found in Him
Or found dead in your sin?

Get on your knees and pray that he will save you
No amount of your good works
Will ever be enough to raise you

We are but dust
help us to number our days
Eyes fixed on eternity 
Extending your grace

Oh what love is this
The good Shepherd, laying his life for the sheep
In awe we stand
All Glory goes to Thee

Romans 3:10 ESV
as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one;

Romans 3:23 ESV
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Romans 5:6-8 ESV
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

John 10:11 ESV
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

Romans 6:6-14 ESV
We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

Romans 6:23 ESV
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
