In Christ Alone

Verse 1
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
 
Chorus 1
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
 
Verse 2
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
 
Chorus 2
'Til on that cross, as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For ev'ry sin on Him was laid,
Here in the death of Christ
I live
 
Verse 3
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
 
Verse 4
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
 
Chorus 3
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
'Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand
