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 fonzydrum’s Ultimate Guitar chords.

Thoughts

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]

In Christ [G] alone will I glory

Though [D] I could pride [C] myself on battles [G] won

For I’ve been [G] blessed beyond measure

And [D] by His strength [C] alone I’ll over[D]come

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

But those [C] trophies could not equal to the [Am] grace by which I [D] stand

[Chorus]

In Christ [C] alone

I place my [G] trust

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

In every [C] victory

Let it be [D] said of [Em] me

My [C] source of strength

[D] My source of hope

Is Christ [G] alone

[Verse 2]

In Christ [G] alone do I glory

For [D] only by His [C] grace I am [G] redeemed

For only [G] His tender mercy

Could [D] reach beyond my [C] weakness to my [D] need

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

And to [C] count my gains but losses to the [Am] glory of my [D] Lord

[Chorus]

In Christ [C] alone

I place my [G] trust

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

In every [C] victory

Let it be [D] said of [Em] me

My [C] source of strength

[D] My source of hope

[Chorus]

In Christ [C] alone

I place my [G] trust

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

In every [C] victory

Let it be [D] said of [Em] me

My [C] source of strength

[D] My source of hope

Is Christ [G] alone

Fluff

An echo actually sounds pretty nice for this chorus too.
