In Christ Alone

This song has been on repeat on my phone all week. It’s the song I talked about here that led me to tears (I’m usually hardcore ooo). These are the lyrics to the song and I’ll add a download link because I think the version of the song I have is amazing. It inserted the chorus of that “My Hope is built on nothing less” hymn in it and I just think its really amazing. Okay to the lyrics:

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.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

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.

You can download the song (or hymn, I’m not really sure) here. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Have you heard this song before? Its quite common. What do yo think about it? What song topped your playlist this week?
