In Christ Alone
Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
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 and strivings cease
My comforter, my all in all
Here in the love of Christ, I stand.
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
Sins'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.
But because of His great love for us
God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive in Christ
even when we were dead in transgressions-
it is by grace you have been saved
