In Christ Alone

In Christ Alone

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 
Fulness 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. 

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'll stand.

In Christ Alone, Stuart Townend, Keith Getty

  2. I love this song! A few years back, I was able to counsel at a high school aged Christian camp. Hearing over a hundred high school kids sing this song with passion and power made me wanna' weep with joy. This song is so profound, and unlike many of the contemporary songs.
