In Christ Alone (I Place My Trust) – Brian Littrell (Chords)

A rousing song.

The standard version, though for those who want to hear what it’s like without the verses and sung by a choir, this sounds pretty good.

Heavily edited (mostly chorded by ear) from Ultimate Guitar chords.


Sharing a name with a more well known song, I recently chanced upon this song again and really liked it. The timing of the verse takes a bit of getting used to but it’s not too bad, and the lyrics do line up quite well with the chorus.


[Verse 1]

_          G

In Christ alone will I glory

_   D                               C                            G
Though I could pride myself in battles won

_                G
For I’ve been blessed beyond measure

_           D                                   C                          D
And by His strength alone I’ll overcome

–   C                                            G                                                      C
Oh, I could stop and count successes like diamonds in my hands

_           C                                                        C                                  D
But those trophies could not equal to the grace by which I stand


_      C
In Christ alone

_                   G
I place my trust

_                                C                     D                      G
And find my glory in the power of the cross

_                  C
In every victory

_       D                           Em
Let it be said of me

_               C
My source of strength

My source of hope

_        G
Is Christ alone


[Verse 2]
_                       G

In Christ alone do I glory

_            D                        C                           G
For only by His grace I am redeemed

_                     G
For only His tender mercy

_              D                                         C                                 D
Could reach beyond my weakness to my need

_             C                                                 G                                             C
And now I seek no greater honor than just to know Him more

_           C                                                        C                       D
And to count my gains but losses to the glory of my Lord


An echo actually sounds pretty nice for this chorus too.
