Sunday Stillness



  
My how    things of this world  do seem to  be  in flux....  one by one, it appears that   all the temporal things  in which we have placed our trust  heretofore,   have been   systematically stripped away.....  until   we it comes   down to In Christ Alone!  And what a  wonderful  song that is..
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
Fullness of God in helpless Babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save

Til 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, 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
Sins 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 a lifes first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand

I will stand, I will stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground, all other ground
Is sinking sand, is sinking sand
So I stand


Oh to  stand on  the promises of God  His love, His mercy,  His  lovingkindness and HIs grace when we see  the world  spiralling out of control,  because we know that  in God   we have our stability!   He is my standard.   our mighty tower,   IN whom we  can place  all of our  trust,,, for He is ever faithful and just....
