Song Lyrics

What wonder of wonders, what love is this
That Christ would die for me
His goodness, His merit, His righteousness
This sinner's only plea

O foolish pride, be crucified
The work is finished

All my boast is in Jesus
All my hope is His love
And I will glory forever
In what the cross has done

Now fully forgiven, my life is filled
With graces undeserved
For mercy that flowed down that sacred hill
Let praises now return

Rise up, my soul, and bless the Lord
Who else is worthy?

All my boast is in Jesus
All my hope is His love
And I will glory forever
In what the cross has done

O praise the One forever blessed
Him alone my heart adores
And I will boast in nothing less
Than the love of Christ, my Lord

O praise the One forever blessed
Him alone my heart adores
Oh, and I will boast in nothing less
Than the love of Christ, my Lord

I boast not in riches, in strength, or might
But in the grace of God
I glory in weakness, to live is Christ
In plenty or in want

That I may know, that all may see
His pow'r within me

All my boast is in Jesus
All my hope is His love
And I will glory forever
In what the cross has done

Now I stand in this freedom
Ransomed, clean in His sight
Oh, and I cannot be ashamed for

My boast is Jesus Christ
My boast is Jesus Christ
Forever my boast is Jesus Christ

Song Story

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. - Galatians 6:14

We live in an age of boasting. Everyone is expected to have a personal brand. Likes and retweets are our currency.

What does the cross of Jesus have to say about where we find our value, our worth?

The Apostle Paul talked a lot about boasting. He had an impressive résumé. But he considered it all worthless compared with the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ. He explains in his letters how there is no room for boasting when it comes to our works (Eph 2:9), our righteousness (Rom 3:27), or any shining achievement in our past (Phil 3:1-11). Why? Because what room do we have to boast in the presence of the Almighty God? (1 Cor 1:29)

Instead of exalting self, Paul exhorts, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord” (2 Cor. 10:17). Rather than glorying in his accomplishments, Paul counts them as worthless in light of what Christ has done (Phil 3:9-11). In lieu of celebrating his strength, he boasts in his weakness, so Christ’s power gets the spotlight (2 Cor. 11:30) Beating at the heart of all this is an understanding that the greatness of Jesus is greater than anything this world has to offer, and the salvation he has brought to mankind is not earned but received by grace through faith alone. It is “not a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Eph 2:8-9).

This new song, “All My Boast is in Jesus,” attempts to help us sing this truth of boasting in Christ and the salvation he accomplished through his life, death, and resurrection. The prayer behind this song is that the Lord might retune our hearts from singing of self—and instead glory in Christ alone.

All my boast is in Jesus
All my hope is his love
And I will glory forever
In what the cross has done.

-Matt Boswell
