Behind the Music

Our church has just kicked off a series focused on the doctrine of the Resurrection as seen in Paul's first letter to the Corinthian Church. As a result, we are singing songs that point us to the effects of the resurrection both now and in the future. These effects are not limited to individual persons but are to the entire scope of all that is seen and unseen. 

Jesus, Only Jesus is a song that points us to the resurrected Messiah. The truths of scripture flow from Redman's text and give us a bigger picture of the person and work of Jesus. Check out the lyrics below and see if you can find at least ten truth filled statements about the person and work of Jesus.  

Let's get you going with one example: In the third line of the first verse, he is described as our hope. How does this apply to your life? Fallen humanity puts hope in everything but Jesus. Yet every hope but Jesus will fail. The hope we place in Jesus will not fail and is a guaranteed hope because of the resurrection. 

Now you give it a shot:

Who has the power to raise the dead
Who can save us from our sin
He is our hope our righteousness
Jesus only Jesus

Who can make the blind to see
Who holds the keys that set us free
He paid it all to bring us peace
Jesus only Jesus

Holy King Almighty Lord
Saints and angels all adore
I join with them and bow before
Jesus only Jesus

Who can command the highest praise
Who has the name above all names
You stand alone I stand amazed
Jesus only Jesus

You will command the highest praise
Yours is the Name above all names
You stand alone I stand amazed
Jesus only Jesus
