Be it far from me to boast
Save in your work on the cross
I have come to know your worth
So I count everything else as loss
By your death I have life
Now with Christ I have been crucified
By the cross I am free
You are everything I’ll ever need

Be it far from me to boast
In what my own hands have wrought
When my deeds will never pay
For what your redeeming blood has bought
As you hung on the tree
Humbly you became the curse for me
All my debts by your blood
Have been paid so I have peace with God

Hallelujah, hallelujah
You are all my righteousness
All my soul sings, hallelujah
In your mercy I will ever rest

Be it far from me to live
In depravity and pride
When you bore the wrath of God
For the ransom of my very life
Though from guilt I am free
May I not parade my liberty
By your grace I will cling
To you, my Christ, my life, my everything

When this body lays to rest
And in death I close my eyes
You will bear me safely through
As my boast will be the cross of Christ
