In Christ Alone

I consider this song to be one of my favorites. I couldn't find a version on Youtube or Godtube that satisfied my liking fully but this one will do, I enjoy Shannon Wexelberge's version, I personally love the power of a woman's voice in this song but it is the lyrics that are so powerful. Newsboys, I think did a beautiful job though here. Enjoy.

In Christ Alone

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
DayUp from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost it's grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Brought 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

This is a beautiful song Kelli and I was just singing it to myself yesterday. My favorite part is the line "No power of Hell, no scheme of man can ever pluck me from his hand."

This is my favorite song! I tear up every time we sing it - the lyrics are so powerful!
