[ capo 1 ]
In GChrist aDlone my Ghope is Afound, D/F#mHe is my Glight, D/F#mmy Em Astrength, my Dsong,
This GCornerDstone, this Gsolid AGround, D/F#mFirm through the GfierD/F#mcest Em Adrought and Dstorm.
What D/F#mheights of Glove, what D/F#mdepths of Apeace, When D/F#mfears are Gstilled, when Bm7strivings Acease!
My GComforDter, my GAll Ain All, D/F#mHere in the Glove D/F#mof Em AChrist I Dstand.
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 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,
'Til He returns or calls me home, Here in the power of Christ I'll stand!
