What I'm Listening To...

"In Christ Alone" sung by Bethany Dillon and Matt Hammitt  on their In Christ Alone - Modern Hymns of Worship album.

In Christ Alone 
Stuart Townsend, Keith Getty

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
Fulness 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 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;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

  1. Hi I was wondering if we talk about some of your photos that you had in a video posted on Youtube ...Patty Loveless Precious Memories. I am looking for photos to include in our regional magazine. We are new and just getting up and going. We produce a magazine for the whole family and some of the photos would be great. I am hoping that they will help get more people to submit photos and family stories. Could we talk about using some of your photos.
