In Christ Alone My Hope Is Found Song Lyrics
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 my hope is found song Lyrics
"In Christ Alone" is a popular modern Christian song written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend, both songwriters of Christian hymns and contemporary worship music in the United Kingdom. The song, with a strong Irish melody, is the first hymn they penned together. The music was by Getty and the original lyrics by Townend. It was composed in 2001.
In 2010, Owl City's Adam Young recorded a version and offered it through his blog. About the song, he wrote: "I'm twenty-four years old, yet something about this song makes me bawl like a baby. The way the melodies and lyrics swirl together is so poignant and beautiful. If I were to count on one hand, the number of songs that have ever deeply moved me, this one would take the cake. Last night I probably spent more time actually crying at the piano than I did recording it. Such are the secret confessions of a shy boy from Minnesota".
The second verse of the hymn contains the line, "Till on that cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied," which adheres to the satisfaction theory of atonement. This line has hence made the song a subject of criticism by opponents of satisfaction theory. In 2013, a 15-member committee of the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted to exclude the song from a new church hymnal after Townend and Getty refused permission to alter the controversial line to "the love of God was magnified." Members of the committee to compile the hymnal had discovered the alternate lyrics in a Baptist hymnal from 2010, causing them to assume that the change had been authorized by the copyright holders. Critics of the committee's decision pointed out that the hymnal included other hymns endorsing satisfaction theory and the substitutionary model of atonement, including "O Sacred Head Now Wounded." According to committee chair Mary Louise Bringle, the decision to exclude "In Christ Alone" centered not on the word "wrath" but rather on "satisfied."
In Christ alone my hope is foundHe is my Light, my Strength, my SongThis cornerstone, this solid groundForm through the fiercest drought and stormWhat heights of love, what depths of peaceWhen fears are stilled, when striving ceaseMy comforter, my all in allHere in the love of Christ I stand
I bless the Lord for putting this song in my mouth this morning, truly my hope is built on nothing less than Jesus name, I always have joy when ever sing this and always believed it's comes a strong spiritual backup.
Dissecting songs with scripture all started in response to the way that my congregation, or in some cases, not singing the new hymns and songs of our faith. My goal was to simply let God show them how richly His Word was impregnated with in each stanza, with hopes that it would change, for the better, how they looked upon the song and how they sang it.
Committee members had found a version of the hymn with the alternate text in the Celebrating Grace Hymnal, a Baptist hymnal published in 2010. They assumed the songwriters already had agreed to the change.
Harland is the director of LifeWay Worship, the music department of the Nashville-based publisher affiliated with the Southern Baptists. He said he admires the Presbyterians for paying close attention to the lyrics of hymns because songs make emotional and intellectual connections with worshippers.
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 peacewhen fears are stilled, when strivings cease!My Comforter, my All in All,here in the love of Christ I stand.
Am in the 28th week of the retreat and much has happened over the last 28 weeks. This morning as I went on the website and went through the Stations of the Cross, I thought of all the crosses we bare here on earth, but none as physically painful as what Jesus endured. My life has taken such a turn that I can barely function. Divorce from a secular marriage with a man who sucked almost all of my spirit out of me. 20 years and in 2009 I left for the final time. I was not beaten physically, but mentally. I kept trying and trying to make it work. I made a decision in 1993 that took me to this place. Through the grace of God, I have been able to get through. I started this retreat in October and in November the father of my children (also an 18 year marriage) died. I was able to be present as best I could for my adult children. That marriage was physically and mentally abusive as well, but I stayed. I was of the belief I could make it ok. All during that marriage I raised three children, Mass, CCD, etc. All of it. I was "running the show." Everything had to be survived. So, 40 years of two men that I needed to make me ok and not alone. I am alone now and have been for awhile. No relationship on earth to fix me, just my relationship with Jesus. This is hard. The evil spirits give me daily battle for my soul. Being alone is not easy. I am slowly turning toward a life of the spirit. I show up for retreat at church, am doing adoration chapel and learning to pray out of desire and responsibility. We have 6 more weeks to go. I am in the process of moving one more time. What is God's will? I do not know. I have learned that it is not the end result that I should be focus on (my desire and needs), but the experience. The last marriage broke me mentally and emotionally and almost spiritually. God did not abandoned me even tho at times over the last four and half years I felt like I was walking through a dark cave with no hope. He (my former husband) would call me and I would talk to him. I deep inside desired his return to me, but something kept saying no. I found out two weeks ago after the divorce, in September he had married, but he never told me. He called me and invited me for coffee and would call and text. I finally have closed the door completely. No more contact. Every time I talked to him I felt like I had dropped into a deep hole and I could feel my strength taken away. He is a troubled man and because I refused to come back, he found another woman to take care of him. I am not healed. The wound goes deep. Sorry to go on and on. A lot is in my mind. I am walking the spiritual path and I now understand my faith is not in my head it is in my soul. It seems my soul is located in my gut because there I feel so much. Thank you for allowing me a place to share. I am a writer and have tried blogging, FB etc. But what I have to write about does not belong on those pages. I am 65 years old and am just waking up to life. Toward the end of my life I have found a beginning and is frightening.

One Night I Found God 05:08 lyrics buy track one night i found god in my room all alone.i said "oh my god!" and i shook in my bones.since then i've been calm, waiting for to go hometo my "oh my god" when this life it is done.i've been in love two of three times at the most.suspicious of love, could it all be a hoax?am i a dumb girl in my room in the lightconcocting a love so i can't feel the night?i like to crack smiles and i like to have fun,but two of my friends died at the edge of a gun.have i forgotten how it felt to be stunned?may it remain in my heart at the bottom.i've wanted to die as long as i can recall.good thing that i never let the knife fall.i wouldn't have known all the joy i do now,joy to be alive, joy that cannot be bound.i want to sing out to the sky, to the clouds.i want to sing loud, make a thundering sound.but one day my sweet voice will be deep underground.no one of god's gifts may we keep once we've found.if i could give advice so that people could hear,i would say "think twice before allowing fearto creep into your mind and to color your life.an action done in fear, it can never be right."one night i found god in my room all alone.i said "oh my god!" and i shook in my bones.since then i've been calm, waiting for to go hometo my "oh my god" when this life it is done. 3.
