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
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.
Till 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 pow'r of Christ in me
from life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
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
