In Christ Alone

Last week I woke up two days in a row with this song playing in my head.  The first day I forgot about it a few hours afterwords and then the next day I woke up with it again.  Anyways, this past week we’ve had a speaker named Maureen Menard talking about the nature/character of God.  At the end of her talk today she played some songs over the sound system and the last song she played was, “In Christ Alone”.  It’s hard to describe the experience through this blogging medium, but… as the song was playing it just felt like God was very present in the room.  Here’s the lyrics to the song:

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 of 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
