In Christ Alone, My Hope is Found

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.

Lagu ini sangat merhema buat hidupku hari-hari ini, sebab karena Kasih Karunia saja kita diselamatkan, bukan oleh perbuatan baik kita. Kita tidak layak menerima keselamatan itu, tetapi Allah yang melayakkan kita oleh karena kita percaya kepada Kristus. Rahasia hidup yang berkuasa adalah menerima segala sesuatu yang telah Yesus capai di kayu salib untuk kita. Oleh karena kita percaya kepada Kristus dan dibaptis dalam darahNya dan dalam RohNya yang kudus, kita menerima kuasa dan kasih karunia, sehingga kita dapat hidup berkemenangan, berkuasa, dan mendampaki dunia. Haleluya, Terpujilah Tuhan Yesus.
