In Christ Alone

Words and Music by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend
Arrangement by Jennifer Shaw and Paul Marino
    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!
