In Christ Alone

In Christ Alone
By: Stuart Townend and Keith Getty

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.
Til 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.
Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
