Casting Crowns – Only Jesus


Casting Crowns – Only Jesus (Lyrics)

Make it count, leave a mark, build a name for yourself
Dream your dreams, chase your heart, above all else
Make a name the world remembers
But all an empty world can sell is empty dreams
I got lost in the light when it was up to me
To make a name the world remembers
But Jesus is the only name to remember

And I, I don’t want to leave a legacy
I don’t care if they remember me
Only Jesus
And I, I’ve only got one life to live
I’ll let every second point to Him
Only Jesus

All the kingdoms built, all the trophies won
Will crumble into dust when it’s said and done
‘Cause all that really mattered
Did I live the truth to the ones I love?
Was my life the proof that there is only One
Whose name will last forever?

And I, I don’t want to leave a legacy
I don’t care if they remember me
Only Jesus
And I, I’ve only got one life to live
I’ll let every second point to Him
Only Jesus

Jesus is the only name
Jesus is the only name
Jesus is the only name to remember, oh
Jesus is the only name
Jesus is the only name
Jesus is the only name to remember

And I, I don’t want to leave a legacy
I don’t care if they remember me
Only Jesus
And I, I’ve only got one life to live
I’ll let every second point to Him
Only Jesus
I don’t want to leave a legacy
I don’t care if they remember me
Only Jesus

    • Yeah, I didn’t really get the setting. Maybe just to show all our best human efforts end up as nothing in the end and are not worth building our lives around. Only Jesus. True statement for sure. God bless!

      • My husband and I are updating our wills soon, and I figured I may as well prepare as much as I can. I’ve already written my final blog and instructions on how to post it. No, I don’t expect it to be soon, but then people don’t often expect it to be soon, and sometimes it is. I just don’t want a bunch of shocked loved ones running around frantically trying to throw something together. I’ve written a letter to our worship leader about the songs I want and the kind of message I want – “It’s ALL JESUS.” I’m confident he and our pastor can prepare things in a calm and orderly manner. 😉

        • That’s awesome! My in-laws had to unexpectedly be put into a home due to severe dementia (my father in-law got dementia from anesthesia and can no longer care for himself or his wife who also has dementia) and things have been crazy because they were not prepared. So, kudos to you for taking into account sudden and unexpected conditions that might arise. I can vouch for the fact that things would be going much smoother right now had they anticipated such conditions. God bless!
