In Christ Alone

I get so caught up in my day to day routine that I don't always take the time to remember what Christ has done for me on the cross. In Christ Alone is a song that we sing at FBC in Greenville, and it's message is so powerful and reminds me of the power that I have in Him. I wanted so badly to link the video that goes with this song, so you could hear it sung, but I'm still new at this blogging thing and haven't figured it out (all helpful tips would be appreciated). If you have time, google "In Christ Alone Video Travis Cottrell" to hear it. Hope it points you to the cross!

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

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

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
