Galatians 2: 20 (KJV)

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
And the life which I now live in the flesh I’ve by the faith of the Son of God, who
Loved me, and gave himself for me.

Not I but Christ
when one cannot go on
not I but Christ.

Not I but Christ
when one’s best
is not good enough
not I but Christ.

Not I but Christ
when the world
hates the
righteousness
of Christ within
not I but Christ.

Not I but Christ
when words and
anger assail and
the emotional
sting is too
much to bear
not I but Christ.

Not I but Christ
when earthly burdens
of sickness, pain, loss,
doubt, worry and fear
seem to heavy
a load to carry
not I but Christ.

Not I but Christ
when we are
marginalized,
minimalized,
and disdained
because the light
and love of Christ
lights up our
hearts and lives
not I but Christ.

Not I but Christ
when jealousy is cruel
and shame and mocking
is demonically sent
to bring us down
not I but Christ is
the victorious song
that calls the saint
to go higher still
to fellowship with
God who truly delights
in our Christ given
robes of righteousness.
not I but Christ.

Not I but Christ
when one’s heart is
so filled with
the earthly cares
and tears of others
not I but Christ.

Not I but Christ,
not I but Christ
not I but Christ
is the eternal,
triumphant,
jubilant,
victorious,
Christ given
song of our heart
that can never be
crushed, bruised
or broken.

For no matter
what comes
my heart,
soul,and mind
will fully lean
into the
limitless
strength
of our
omnipotent,
omniscient,
omnipresent
Triune God.

Not I but Christ
is our victorious
mindset of
triumphant faith
that puts our
feet of clay
upon the solid rock
of Jesus Christ,
our risen Lord.

Not I but Christ,
not I but Christ,
not I but Christ
is the glorious
mindset of
courageous faith
that can never
be shaken!
