In Christ Alone


One of my very favorite songs is "In Christ Alone." When I hear this song I can't help but be happy. It is because of Christ, and Christ alone, that I have hope and joy in this life. If you want to hear this song, scroll to the bottom of my blog and click play on the play list. "In Christ Alone" is the first song that will play.

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,
Fulness 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.

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.

I love this song so much and the words come to mind when I begin to worry and and fret about Jada and what diabetes could potentially do to her little body. It is in Him alone that I place my trust for all things- my life, my salvation, my children and my fears. Thanks for the reminder! :)

This is one of my favorites too! It makes me feel strong and victorious inside, even when I'm weak. I think the best part is "Then bursting forth, in glorious day, up from the grave he rose again!" :-)
