Love Songs

There was a post on heartcriesholy yesterday and one thing that struck me was the love song part. So here are the lyrics to two songs that….. I can’t describe the feeling. Songs I hear and I feel the writer/composer was in my heart. Songs that move me to tears when I hear them. In Christ alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty and Lend your song to me by Micah Stampley. Watch Micah perform on New Year’s Eve 2011 and all I could say was WOW…

In Christ Alone

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 every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live, 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 power of Christ in me
From a life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand 

Link to In Christ alone (quite a number of people have youtube videos on it but here is one which features one of the original composers and Owl City’s): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLy8ksqGf9w&feature=related and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ipl-rLRxOrs&feature=related

Lend your song to me

I will worship u with a song in the desert breeze
I will worship with the drumbeat on your holy hill
I will worship u as an instrument of your righteousness
I will worship u with the words you wanna hear

[Chorus:]
Lend your song to me 

U can trust me
And I will sing to u with my voice my voice
And I amplify the sound of heavens with pipes

And I will offer up myself a holy sacrifice here I am
And I? ll drink forever more from the river of new life

[Chorus]
Lend your song to me

I can hear the sound of heaven like a mighty rushing wind
I can hear the sound of heaven rushing rushing me in 
Give me a sound
Can u hear it I can hear it

  1. Been listening to a lot of gospel songs recently that’s the only comforting music to me at the moment. The ability of a song to speak to you is something that very few things can compare to. Main reason why I look at the music currently up and about and shake my head..
    I am back o… 🙂

  2. In Christ Alone…I love love love that song. The words are just wonderful…they just speak to you. And the Power….hmmn…beyond words. I think it should be the anthem on every believer’s lips.
