In Christ Alone

A song from yesterday's church service. It was all I could do not openly weep. Come to my house; I'll play and sing it for you. :)

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, Where 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
Till 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

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sifting sand,
All other ground is sifting sand

(This is my favorite verse)
No guilt in 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
Till He returns or calls me home, Here in the power of Christ, I stand.

-Stuart Townsend/Kingsway's Thankyou music

When we live without guilt or fear, it is a testimony of Christ's power in us.
Only by the grace of God.
