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 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

    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 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.

    God of new beginnings.
    Do something new.
    Thy compassions fail not.
    New every day.
    Great is Thy faithfulness.
    In Your loving kindness.
    Do something new.
    (Lamentation 3:22-23)

    Remember gracious Lord.
    Your holy word.
    I will do something new.
    For all to see.
    Great things past finding out.
    Wonders without number.
    Do something new.
    (Job 9:10-11)

    Let dry bones rise again.
    Though very dry.
    By our prophetic word.
    Let them revive.
    Sinew, flesh and the skin.
    Let the wind of life blow.
    Do a new thing.



    (Ezekiel 37: 1-10).




    Thus says the Lord our God.
    To His people.
    I will open your graves.
    You will come out.
    And be fully restored.
    Fill your congregation.
    With songs of praise!

    (Ezekiel 37: 12-14.

    It reminds us of dat portion of d bible dat says; greater luv is this, dat a man should lay down his life for his friends. Jesus did dat. Hence we are reminded of his redemptive work on d cros.
