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 ev’ry 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 pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.”

This is one of my top three worship songs…though I have a hard time singing it in church because it always makes me weep to sing about the sacrifice that Jesus made for all of us and how much He loves us.
It’s one f my favorite as well. It has a strong message. It’s refreshing though to remember that in Him alone I am whole. Nothing else is needed; not my works because He/Christ did it(on the cross) and I am free. In him I am free, in Him I am forgiven, in Him I have life beyond this earthly body. And I am thankful.
One of my favorite songs!!
Mine too 😁
I needed that
My joy. We all need the reminder from these words constantly.🌹
I love this song! and now it is playing on a loop in my head! Thank you for beginning this prayer today.
I absolutely love this hymn. I pray that we are constantly reminded of who we are in Christ and the fact that He is sufficient.
May this Lenten period be a time of reflection of who Christ is in our lives.
My comforter, my all in all…here in the love of Christ I stand
