Lauren Daigle, a singer and former “American Idol” contestant, performs an incredible acoustical version of “In Christ Alone.”
This powerful modern hymn sounds like it has been around for 100 years, but it was actually written in the 21st century. It was written and composed by songwriters Keith Getty and Stuart Townend in 2001 and has since become one of the most popular hymns sung in churches today.
Read these powerful lyrics as Lauren sings:
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.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.
Such a beautiful rendition of this modern classic!
“For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross” (Colossians 1:19-20).
