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
Fullness of God in helpless babe
The gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross when 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 laid
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
Could ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand
Here in the power of Christ I stand

Once for All

Behold the King so innocent, a crown of thrones upon His head
Feel His heart—His heart of grace
Behold the man of suffering who bore the cross and all our shame
Breathe again this mystery
Nailed to a cross there in our place, O lamb of God you made a way

Once for all You died so I could live again
Once for all You washed away our sin
Streams of mercy and love flowing free forevermore
And Your blood ran down once for all

The scars of love can still be seen on Your hands and on Your feet
We feel Your heart—Your heart of grace
Heaven's gates opened wide, You have raised us up to life
We breathe again this mystery
Nailed to a cross there in our place, O lamb of God you made a way

Once for all You died so I could live again
Once for all You washed away our sin
Streams of mercy and love flowing free forevermore
And Your blood ran down once for all

In the shadow of the cross we see our shame for what it was
And feel Your heart—Your heart of grace
We see Your power breaking through and all that we've become in You
We breathe again this mystery
Up from the grave now raised to life O, Son of God we lift You high

Once for all You died so I could live again
Once for all You washed away our sin
Streams of mercy and love flowing free forevermore
And Your blood ran down once for all


Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever
Amen

Abide with Me
henry lyte,

Abide with me: fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens, Lord with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless, O abide with me

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day
Earth's joys grow dim and its glories pass away
Change and decay in all around I see.
O, Thou who changes not abide with me

I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness
Where is death's sting? Where grave thy victory?
I triumph still if Thou abide with me

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies
Heaven's morning breaks and earth's vain shadows flee
In life, in death, O Lord abide with me
Abide with me, abide with me
