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
'Till 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 it's 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
'Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

    That only in christ can we find life and hope for a future. That is why I pray daily that god will use me as a tool to glorify him in some way. Only in god can we be saved through his grace. That is why in christ alone can we know god. So the things we do in this world should not be for us but it should be for god, because he loved us first.

    As we walk through life there are many changes, but our hope in christ stays the same as long as we give him our all. He has taken and will continue til he comes again redeem anyone as he has already paid the sin debt one that non of us are capable to do as we were born and walk in sin. There is not one that can take us from christ once we are his. Standing firm.

    I wish you could see the huge smile on my face and hear the laughter of my heart. There is so much life and joy and victory when we walk with christ. There are no words to describe the overwhelming feelings of love, paece, joy that come with his love and this song for me, sums up the reason why. Because he loved me and gained the victory for me so I could be consumed by him and him alone.

    Day after day we try to ind things to put our hope in, to put our fears in, and to put our love upon. We look for someone to take our pain away to help us be happy to make us feel like we have a place. But where do we look for that? Very few of us ever look to god in these moments, but the truth is all the things we hope or seek for can be found in christ alone. He commands my future, and there is nothing on this earth that can take us from his hand. Stand in christ alone not the world!

    This is the song that describes the gospel, and really makes you understand all that jesus has done for everyone. A couple of my favorite lines are "scorned by the ones he came to save" because it really makes me feel like, although jesus is king of all kings and is the most powerful, I should keep going out there and sharing his story because just like him I will be scored by people, but so was my savior. (i hope that makes sense). Another is: "bought by the precious blood of christ. " first this goes to show that nothing in life is free, not even my life or your life was free because jesus paid your price to bring you into this world. You were picked out and bought.
