Verse 1
D         G            C        D
In Christ alone my hope is found
C            D                G
He is my light, my strength, my song
D        G            C        D
this cornerstone, this solid ground
C            D            G
firm through the fiercest drought and storm
C                C/E         D
What heights of love, what depths of peace
G/B          C                C/E        D   
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease
G          C     D
My comforter, my all in all
C        D            G
here in the love of Christ I stand

Verse 2
D        G             C            D
In Christ alone, who took on flesh
C            D        G
fullness of God in helpless Babe
C           D
This gift of love and righteousness
C          D           G
scorned by the ones He came to save
C      G/E      D
’Til on that cross as Jesus died
G/B        C            C/E    D
the wrath of God was satisfied
G       C            D
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid
C            D        G
here in the death of Christ I live

Verse 3
D        G            C        D
There in the ground His body lay
C           D            G
Light of the world by darkness slain
G            C        D
then, bursting forth in glorious day
C            D        G
up from the grave He rose again
C    C/E    D
And as He stands in victory
G/B        C        C/E      D
sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
G            C        D
for I am His and He is mine
C            D            G
bought with the precious blood of Christ

Verse 4
D      G        C        D
No guilt in life, no fear in death
C            D        G
this is the pow’r of Christ in me
G        C        D
from life’s first cry to final breath
C                D      G
Jesus commands my destiny
C            C/E        D
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man
G/B     C         C/E        D
can ever pluck me from His hand
G            C            D
’til He returns or calls me home
C            D            G
here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand
