IN CHRIST ALONE by NATALIE GRANT
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.
“… Unto Him that loved us, and washed us
from our sins in His own blood.”
PRAYER: Jesus we thank You that in You alone do we stand, and find our hope and light and strength and song each day. In Your love, our strivings cease and fears are gone. You cleanse us from all unrighteousness through Your shed blood, and give us Your peace that passes understanding. Nothing can take us from out of Your care or remove us from life with You. For us to live is Christ, and to die is gain. One day we shall stand before the throne of God, the One true God Who always was and always will be, Who formed the universe from nothingness. It is difficult for us to comprehend One Who is eternal, and yet by faith we await the day when we too shall inherit eternal life, because of what Jesus did for us. While we live on earth Lord, enable us to serve You first and best, as You work in and through us, to Your honor and glory. This is our deepest need and prayer, to live close to You, equally yoked with Christ, in Whose name we pray, amen.
