Meditating, Music: In Christ Alone

Consider meditating on these songs as you meditate on His word throughout the rest of this week and any other time you desire to just concentrate on the Lord. You may read the Book of Luke, Matthew, Mark or John or any book that has been on your heart or has come to your mind.

Here is the first song I would like to share. May you understand the meaning of it this song to the fullest degree. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found. He is my light, my strength, my song. This corner-stone, this solid ground, firm in 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 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 brought 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 and final breath, Jesus commands my destiny. No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck me from His hand, till He returns or calls me home, here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.
