In Christ Alone...Happy Easter


We sang this song at our Easter service this morning...you can listen to it here. I love it for so many reasons, but mainly because it tells the story of my faith. Hope you all had a wonderful day. Maybe some fun pictures of our lovely day to come tommorow...but for now I thought these lyrics were quite fitting...


~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 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 of 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

I love this song too! I have to admit, I've requested it a few times from our praise team! I am the pastors wife, so I guess I get what I want! :)

Mimes, it is so funny that you posted this song, because I feel exactly the same way about it. In fact, when we were singing it in church yesterday, it made me cry because the words express everything that is in my heart. One of my favorite lines is "From life's first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny." For someone who is such a planner, that line gives me such freedom and peace. I love you my dear sister and I am so glad that I got to surprise you yesterday!
