There Is One Gospel

Verse 1

There is one Gospel on which I stand

For all eternity.

It is my story, my Father’s plan;

The Son has rescued me.

Oh what a Gospel, Oh what a peace,

My highest joy and my deepest need;

Now and forever He is my light,

I stand in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Verse 2

There is one Gospel to which I cling,

All else I count as loss;

For there, where justice and mercy meet

He saved me on the cross.

No more I boast in what I can bring,

No more I carry the weight of sin

For He has brought me from death to life;

I stand in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Verse 3

There is one Gospel where hope is found;

The empty tomb still speaks,

For death could not keep my Saviour down;

He lives and I am free!

Now on my Saviour, I fix my eyes,

My life is His and His hope is mine!

For He has promised I, too, will rise;

I stand in the Gospel of Jesus Christ


Verse 4

And in this Gospel the church is one,

We do not walk alone;

We have His Spirit as we press on

To lead us safely home!

And when in glory, still I will sing

Of this old story that rescued me;

Praise to my Saviour, the King of life,

I stand in the Gospel of Jesus Christ!



Scripture Resources

Philippians 1:27

Only let your manner of life be worthy

of the gospel of Christ,

so that whether I come and see you or am absent,

I may hear of you that you are standing firm

in one spirit, with one mind

striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.

1 Corinthians 2:2-5

For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.  And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men[c] but in the power of God.

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 


About the Song

from CityAlight . . .

"When writing this track, our aim was to provide a means for unifying believers around the world in the singing of our shared gospel, handed down to us from the apostles, made possible for us by the saving work of Jesus. Whether you are in a small group, with your own church, or gathered with a diverse crowd of believers, we hope that this song will unify hearts and minds around the great truths of the gospel on which we all stand."


About the Songwriters

[CityAlight is] a music ministry from St Paul’s church in Sydney, Australia. Our vision is to write songs with biblically rich lyrics and simple melodies for Christian church to sing.

We pray that the lyrics and melodies of these songs would fix eyes, hearts, and minds on Jesus. We pray that our songs might join the many thousands of songs written through history to encourage the church, and when they have played their role, to make way for the next ones.

And we rejoice that one day the only name left standing will be the name of Jesus, as it should be.


We are commanded to, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs." (Colossians 3:16). Accordingly, we incorporate hymns into our regular Sunday morning worship at Pacific Hope Church. We firmly believe in equipping God's people with the knowledge of His Word through sound teaching in our classes, Bible studies, and even in our Sunday morning worship. Our worship will always be with the purpose of exalting the Lord to His proper place; it is never man-centered or seeking to create an emotional experience.
