i have decided that if i were ever to fall, get lost, or get stuck at the bottom of the grand canyon, i would sing this song. it's quite a good song. and no one would hear me. be glad at that.

IN CHRIST ALONE -- by 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
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 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 it's 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

karawarnock; said...

Sean said...

wow, you changed you blog

karawarnock; said...

i'm one of those odd people who LIKE change.

which reminds me, i want a new hairstyle. maybe i'll go get it cut this week.

kerstina said...

no...i can get it if you really want it though

change is good..you need change once in a while

joel sczebel said...

I don't like change. I like change.

joel sczebel said...

It's not a contradiction. It just seems like it because I'm not explaining. But if I explained it wouldn't be neato anymore.

damaris said...

i like change in general.

there are times when i struggle with major changes that i consider catastrophic. but really, it's cause i'm just being self-centered.

grand canyon is cool. but yellowstone is cooler.

karawarnock; said...

yes boring is bad joe. good point. we like neato.

i'll probably visit yellowstone sometime in my life. my mom wanted to go to sedona. but the sun had already gone down.

dont you guys get annoyed with spellcheck? it makes everything RED.

it is a very logical song to sing if you where stuck in the grand canyon or any canyon really.
josh (??)
