My hope is found
He is my life, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this solid rock
Firm through the fierces, 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 depth 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 the pow'r of christ in me,
From life's first cry, to final braeth.
Jesus commands my destiny
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from his hand
Till he returns or call me home
Here in the pow'r of christ I'll stand .....
