While visiting my family this weekend in Tennessee I went to church with my aunt and uncle. We sang the song "In Christ Alone" and it reminded me of the beautiful gift we've been given and the victory that is ours who are God's children. Here are the lyrics...
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 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 ‘til He returns or calls me home Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
What amazing truths! I encourage you to download this song and take a minute to really worship our Savior and Victor!
