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
'Til 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
'Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand

this is my favorite hymn/worship song of all time...everytime i read the words, or sing it, or heal the song, i can't help but cry...if you turn up the volume on here, i have it playing for you to listen

i wanted to share it today because of what this Easter time means for me and for all those who accept His sacrifice of love on the cross and His giving of new life through the Resurrection

if you've never experienced God through a relationship with Jesus Christ, ask Him to come into your heart and your life today...you'll never be the same, and you'll never want to go back to the way things were before...i guarantee it

may God bless you, and may you fall in love with Christ alone today, tomorrow, and every day of your life
