In Christ Alone…

I’m head over heels for the new Hymn and Folk song collection from Red Letter Words.  Few things move me like music does.  I’ve played the piano for church since I was six years old. Yes, six. When I play and sing I feel closest to God, my Savior. It is the way I worship.

I love every piece in the new collection, but especially this phrase from one of my favorite songs, “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.

I hope you are encouraged today to look to Jesus. Lean hard on Him.

I’m so thankful for each of you, my friends!

    I enjoy old hymns too! I recently discovered Bart Millard’s CD, Hymmed. I love his remake of some of my favorite church hymns that I grew up listening too. Thanks for sharing the art work!

    In Christ Alone is one of my favourite hymns too. I think the last verse is the one I love best

    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.

    I lead the singing at our church once a month & whenever I sing this verse I struggle not to cry.

    Thank you for sharing the link to Red Letter Words.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the hymn collection, thank you for sharing. When I hopped over to the Red Letter Words site I found everyone of those songs playing in my head, reminding me of the tiny little country church that I grew up in where we sang those songs over and over. The church we attend now sings a blend of hymns with contemporary piecesbut there is just something about those old hymns that really blesses my heart each and everytime we sing them. :)

    Hi, I’m a first-time visitor. Thanks for your website Myra. If I may ask, regarding a post of Annette within this thread, concerning “In Christ Alone”. I would like to know if that really qualifies as a “hymn”. Please set me straight, because I’m not sure it’s a “hymn”. And I would like to know what makes a hymn a hymn. Maybe someone would say that any slow Christian song — or any contemplative Christian song — qualifies as a “hymn”. Can someone please clarify. Thanks for letting me post.

    Well I travelled to the website and liked the link. There are so many products. I couldn’t figure out which one I would tell you about but I did notice that there was a $25
    gift certificate in the listings. Wow! What I could get with that. I wouldn’t have to decide, I can get them both.
    Loved the song. Hear it all the time. Sometimes though< it is nice to read the words. Thanks!

    I go to quite a contemporary church so it’s rare that I get to sing a hymn – but when I do, this one gives me goosebumps all over! One of my favs! Sonic Flood did a version years ago and I love it. Thanks for the encouragement!

    I’m new to your blog today and thought it was just perfect timing! That is one of my all-time favorite songs and I literally can’t ever make it through singing it in church without the tears flowing. I’m so enjoying looking around and checking out all of your incredible posts and can’t wait to see more! :-)

    This was a WONDERFUL post for a Sunday afternoon read! Thank you so much! It also brought to mind for me one of my favorite songs “In Christ Alone”….

    In Christ alone will I glory
    Though I could pride myself in battles won
    For I’ve been blessed beyond measure
    And by His strength alone I’ll overcome
    Oh, I could stop and count successes like diamonds in my hands
    But those trophies could not equal to the grace by which I stand

    In Christ alone
    I place my trust
    And find my glory in the power of the cross
    In every victory
    Let it be said of me
    My source of strength
    My source of hope
    Is Christ alone

    In Christ alone do I glory
    For only by His grace I am redeemed
    For only His tender mercy
    Could reach beyond my weakness to my need
    And now I seek no greater honor in just to know Him more
    And to count my gains but losses to the glory of my Lord

    In Christ alone
    I place my trust
    And find my glory in the power of the cross
    In every victory
    Let it be said of me
    My source of strength
    My source of hope
    Is Christ alone
