Chris Parrish and Andy Jordan from Youthworks Detroit prepared this for the YES retreat 2011. It's a cover of Lecrae's song called Boasting.


If this life has anything to gain at all

I count it lost if I can't hear you, feel you, 'cause I need you

Can't walk this earth alone

I recognize I am not my own, so before I fall

I need to hear you, feel you, as I live to make my boast in you alone

Verse 1:

With every breath I take, with every heart beat,

Sunrise and the moon lights in the dark street

Every glance, every dance, every note of a song

It's all a gift undeserved that I shouldn't have known

Every day that I lie, every moment I covet

I'm deserving to die, I'm just earning your judgment

I, without the cross there's only condemnation

If Jesus wasn't executed there's no celebration

So in times that are good, in times that are bad

For any times that I've had it all I will be glad

And I will boast in the cross, I boast in my pains

I will boast in the sunshine, boast in his reign (rain)

What's my life if it's not praising you

Another dollar in my bank account of vain pursuit, I do

That count my life as any value or precious at all

Let me finish my race, let me answer my call


Verse 2:

Tomorrow's never promised, but it is we swear

Think we holding our own, just a fist full of air

God has never been obligated to give us life

If we fought for our rights, we be in hell tonight

Mere sinners own nothing but a fierce hand

We never loved him we pushed away his pierced hands

I rejected his love, grace, kindness, and mercy

Dying of thirst, yet, willing to die thirsty

Eternally worthy, how could I live for less?

Patiently you turn my heart away from selfishness

I volunteer for your sanctifying surgery

I know the spirits purging me of everything that's hurting me

Remove the veil from my darkened eyes

So now every morning I open Your Word and see the Son (Sun) rise

I hope in nothin', boast in nothin', only in your sufferin'

I live to show your glory, dyin' to tell your story



Glory was solely meant for you

Doing what no one else could do

With all I have to give, (With all I have to give)

I'll use my life, I'll use my lips (My Lips, Yaaa)

I'll only glory in your Word

What gift to me I don't deserve

I'll live in such a way that it reflects to you, my Praise
