This song was first song by Michael English, another very talented artist. Brian Littrell, also formally known as a member of the Backstreet Boys, won the Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year in 2006 GMA Music Awards. After his producer called and asked him to listen to this song, he said, “How did that get by me? Thank God I found it; it has been the perfect song for me, especially the lyrics. It kind of says it all. ‘In Christ alone will I glory/For only by His grace I am redeemed/And only His tender mercy could reach/Beyond my weakness to my need.'” He shares with others in his album label that this song tells his story: “I think all accolades that I have nothing, and I could count my blessings like diamonds in my hand, but these trophies could not equal the grace by which I stand.”
Great song and one of my favorites too. I hope you enjoy it.
