In Christ alone, my hope is found

*I just love this song, in thinking about the full and free gift of Christ’s life in death this Passover.

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 / ‘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 of 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 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 to call me home / Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

    This is also one of my favorites and we sang it my mother’s funeral because we felt the words were so fitting. Stuart Townsend is such a talented writer, he has the ability to compose lyrics reminiscent of old hymns yet attach it to modern music in a way that few other worship musicians can.

    God morning. These are such powerful lyrics as we truly have a risen Savior who is alive forever more. Jesus Christ; our Savior and King who has promised to be with us always and to return for those who long for his appearing. Thanks for posting.
    Have a blessed day in Christ.

    I actually do go along with each of the principles you’ve got unveiled with your submit. They may be very convincing and can undoubtedly perform. Nonetheless, the particular discussions are extremely speedy to begin with. Could you you need to prolong these people a little via when? Appreciate this publish.
