​Musical Musings~ Reflections on Sunday’s Music

  1. In Christ Alone
"In Christ Alone" was written by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty in 2002 and is considered a modern hymn that encompasses the themes of life, death and the resurrection of Christ.  Townend and Getty capture biblical truth in this hymn which according to them "will not only cause people to express their worship in church, but will build them up in their Christian lives." Stuart Townend is particularly excited about the lyrics: "The lyric excites me because it places our hope, our assurance, our eternal destiny in the right place-on the solid foundation of Christ. I know in my own life I need reminding continually not to live by my feelings or my circumstances, but by the unchanging truth of the gospel."
