In Christ Alone

     Sometimes the power of a song amazes me. This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I haven't thought of it in a while, but we sang it in church this evening and the words ring with such power, I close my eyes and am ushered in to the throne room of our Living God. The amazing love of Christ resounds in the lyrics and you can't help for praise God for all that he is. The last two verses are so full of victory, it nearly brings me to joyous tears every time I hear it. Listen to this song today and remember all that Christ has done for you, is doing for you and the GOOD plans he has for your future. You are loved by such an amazing God. Go. Shout it to the world. 

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt of life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
