“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
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.

In the coming days that are ahead what will your stand be?

  1. “In Christ Alone” was written by Keith Getty (Northern Ireland) and Stuart Townend (England) in 2001 and numerous Christian artists have recorded it since, including Keith & Kristyn Getty in the album ‘In Christ Alone’ in 2008. We saw the Getty’s in concert at a local church some years ago and it was tremendous!

    Variations in the hymn versions concerned the differences in theological significance of the line published in the Celebrating Grace Baptist hymnal: “Till on that cross as Jesus died the love of God was magnified” and the line the copyright holders prefer, “Till on that cross as Jesus died the wrath of God was satisfied.” The question concerns interpretations of atonement theory, particularly penal substitution theory and the satisfaction theory of atonement.[

    The hymn clearly speaks of the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and is rich with Reformation theology and the penal substitution of Christ for the sins of God’s people.
