“In the Cross of Christ I Glory” was a hymn I found in the hymnal that I had never heard before. But when I read the lyrics I was inspired by the deep truths in it. I wrote my own melody so I could sing the words by John Bowring, and added a chorus to the 4 original verses. 

We recorded this track at The Master’s Touch Studios with the sound master himself, David Lubbers. I’m so grateful for his expertise and experienced ear to help make me sound great! 

I am super excited for you to hear this new song! I hope it is inspiring and encouraging for you.

You should be able to find it on all your favorite streaming apps and music download sites! Here are direct links to my artist profiles on Apple Music and Spotify. Apple Music iTunes + Spotify

But if you have accounts with Amazon Prime Music, Pandora, or another site like them, it should be there! It was distributed to 150+ sites! Just use the search feature and look up “Kerry Brock” or “In the cross of Christ I glory”. Look for this cover art I created! vv

These verses from John Bowring were published originally in 1825 (according to Google). The chorus you’ll get to hear on this single release (on JUNE 15th!!) was written by me during summer 2019. The melody is original, composed by myself the same time the chorus was written.

Last year, many of you stepped up to support my little music fund and see where God would lead Davy and I with my music. We started praying, practicing, and recording music towards the end of the year and into early 2021. Recording can be a long process, humbling, but also super fun. 

This song came together pretty seamlessly and we are excited to see how God might use it!

Galatians 6:14 “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.”

Verse 1
In the cross of Christ I glory,
Tow’ring o’er the wrecks of time;
All the light of sacred story
Gathers round its head sublime.

Chorus
In the cross of Christ I glory,
On that cross my Savior died.
I make my boast in Jesus only,
In the cross of Christ I glory.

Verse 2
When the woes of life o’ertake me,
Hopes deceive, and fears annoy,
Never shall the cross forsake me,
Lo! it glows with peace and joy.

Chorus
In the cross of Christ I glory,
On that cross my Savior died.
I make my boast in Jesus only,
In the cross of Christ I glory.

Verse 3
When the sun of bliss is beaming,
Light and love upon my way,
From the cross the radiance streaming,
Adds more luster to the day.

Chorus
In the cross of Christ I glory,
On that cross my Savior died.
I make my boast in Jesus only,
In the cross of Christ I glory.

Verse 4
Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,
By the cross are sanctified;
Peace is there that knows no measure,
Joys that through all time abide.

Chorus
In the cross of Christ I glory,
On that cross my Savior died.
I make my boast in Jesus only,
In the cross of Christ I glory.
