Praise Post

Often I simply praise God thru music. Thought I'd share one of my favorites with you. First the lyrics. And a link to a video on YouTube is at the bottom. If you can spare 5 minutes, maybe you can praise God too. :o)

"In Christ Alone"
Words and Music by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

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.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev'ry 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 pow'r of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to 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.

It's one of those that gives me chills.

my fave rendition of this song is by Brian Littrell - a former member of one of those boy bands like 98 degrees or something like that. if you get a chance check him out, he's awesome!

oh yeah, I realize the words are slightly different, but same basic concept.

That's a good song too but it's a completely different one. Interesting that they have the same title.
