He is not here...

"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying."
~Matthew 28:6

All day yesterday and today, I have had the song "In Christ Alone" stuck in my head. It is such a great song and to me it sums up what Easter is all about. I just wanted to share it with you as we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord! Happy Easter!



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.

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.

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow'r of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.

"In Christ Alone"

This is such a wonderful song! We sang it at church yesterday. You should stop by my blog and participate in Praise and Worship Sunday. I have it every week. This song would have worked perfectly!

Have a blessed week!
