I have two favorite hymns, with a few following close behind. The first is Be Thou My Vision. This song became dear to me after singing it in choir. I will always like it.
The second is In Christ Alone. This song I have just recently learned, in church. I love it. It sounds wonderful with our small church singing it on Sundays. I wish Aaron played it every Sunday. :)
In Christ Alone
by Keith Getty and 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 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;
Till He returns or calls me home-
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.
The last four lines are my favorite.
In Christ Alone,
