As For Me And My House

As For Me And My House


Written by Tim Miller and Jake Paurus.


“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (Ga 6:14).

“But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith” (Php 3:7-9)

As For Me And My House is part of the Christ The Wisdom, Christ The Power album.

As For Me And My House


Verse 1

Wealth and riches, fame and fortune, empty vanities

Ease and comfort, love of money, lull the heart to sleep

Confidence in gold and silver, false security

Sets the stage for lawlessness, the great idolatry

Those who trust in mammon, taking refuge in a lie

Gain the whole world now, but in the end they lose their life

So the folly of this evil age, we leave it all behind

We resolve to know nothing but Messiah crucified


As for me and my house, we will boast in the cross

What was once to our gain, now we count it as loss

Well-fed or in want, we are Yours come what may

In life or in death, glorify the Lamb that was slain

The Lamb that was slain

Verse 2

Clever talk, deceitful scheming, lust for human praise

Empty chatter void of power leads the flocks astray

A house of hay and stubble is the wisdom of this age

Never gonna’ make it through the fire of that Day

Well the man who loves is known by God, but knowledge fills with pride

The foolishness of God shines brighter than the sage’s light

So though the Greek may look for wisdom and the Jew look for a sign

We resolve to know nothing but Messiah crucified

Chorus repeat


The Lamb that was slain, Though he was rich for our sakes,

became poor so that we through his death may partake

In the prize, in the treasure, eternal life, joy, n pleasure

At his right hand forever, in the ages to come

showin’ us the riches of his kindness and love

He was cut off from the land of the livin’,

oppressed and afflicted, His death for the wicked,

when his body was given on His people’s behalf

Messiah bled, so The wrath would pass

Behold I come–as is written in the scroll– 

A body prepared, not the blood of animals

To do the Fathers will, laying down his life

Once and for all as a holy sacrifice 

The blood of Christ, it paid the price, 

it sanctified a spotless bride, On hearts and mind,

His law He’ll write From every nation tongue and tribe

Their God He will be, forever they’ll be his own

The whole building rests on the rejected corner stone

Precious in their eyes, the pearl of greatest price

They leave all behind, regardless the cost
