As I drove the kids to school on Monday, this song came streaming through my Pandora playlist. The words renewed my spirit and energized my soul! I sung it all day, and the melody echoes through my head even now. The words are so powerful, so true; they are a healing balm, an enduring promise. Read the familiar verses with fresh eyes! Let the truth of these words fall on an open heart and be encouraged. He who took on flesh, bore our sins, died on the cross, and rose from the grave … HE is your hope, your cornerstone, your solid ground, and nothing can pluck you from HIs hand! If you do nothing else today, let that truth sink in to your deepest places.
With this song repeating in my mind, I sat down and drew a little art piece with the words. It’s hand-drawn, so it’s not perfect. But I like it, and I thought you might too. So I used it to design an 8×10 printable for you. Just click here for the printable, free for personal use only. And if you like it, please bless someone else by sharing the link with them as well.
Have a lovely day, dear friends! And if you’re interested in a Pandora station that will bless you with a combination of current praise songs and some reinvented old hymns, add “Whom Shall I Fear” to your station list. It’s a good one!
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
Fulness 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 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;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
