Clean Slate

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 and All,
here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone! Who took on flesh
Fulness 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.

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 stand in victory
Sin's curse has lost it's 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 life's first cry, to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can every pluck, me from his hand;
Till He returns, or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.
