Hymn/Song Information

Not I but Christ be honoured loved exalt




“Not I, but Christ,”
be honoured, loved, exalted;
“Not I, but Christ,”
be seen, be known, be heard;
“Not I, but Christ,”
in ev’ry look and action;
“Not I, but Christ,”
in ev’ry thought and word.


“Not I, but Christ,”
to gently soothe in sorrow;
“Not I, but Christ,”
to wipe the falling tear;
“Not I, but Christ,”
to lift the weary burden;
“Not I, but Christ,”
to hush away all fear.


“Not I, but Christ,”
in lowly, silent labour;
“Not I, but Christ,”
in humble, earnest toil;
Christ, only Christ,
no show, no ostentation;
Christ, none but Christ,
the gatherer of the spoil.


Christ, only Christ,
ere long will fill my vision;
Glory excelling,
soon, full soon, I’ll see—
Christ, only Christ,
my every wish fulfilling—
Christ, only Christ,
my All in All to be.
