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,
  • 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

  • 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.
