In Christ Alone
written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townsend

"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."

This powerful hymn is a very modern one. It was written and composed in 2001 by a duo in the United Kingdom. Although it is a fairly recent hymn, its powerful presentation of the Gospel has made it quickly rise in popularity, and it was named the 9th best loved hymn of all time in the UK. I know personally, the words to this hymn run through my mind when I am overwhelmed and discouraged. (I highly recommend the Newsboys cover of this song)

     This is love:
     Not that we loved God,
     but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
     1 John 4:10
