If we are raised to life with Christ


1 If we are raised to life with Christ,

no more to creep along the ground,

we fix our minds on things above

where Christ is King at God’s right hand.


2 If we are raised to life with Christ

we put to death our fatal greed

and all abuse of hand or brain,

for God will judge each godless deed.


3 If we are raised to life with Christ,

daily renewed in every part,

we join with all who know our God,

one image stamped on every heart.


4 If we are raised to life with Christ

who loved and chose us for his own,

we walk his way, reflect his light,

and share his love which makes us one.



In Christ alone


1 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


2 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


3 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


4 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
