Here is a beautiful song, one of my favorites. Only someone that knows Christ personally can really feel the Love they have for Christ after reading these words...

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 of 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

( Andrew Shawn Craig and Donald A. Koch)

This brought tears to my eyes, because I do know him personally, for I have seen him twice in my life. Wonderful words Cristina. Thank you.

Scorned by the ones He came to save. That about says it all, doesn't it?

"my All in All"

Let that be true in my life not just my words!

My life too. “If God is for us, who can be against us? These words should encourage us.

I, too, love this song along with other great hymns that we sing at church.
