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

When I hear
this song, it speak to my heart.
I've written about "Soli Christi" - Christ alone.
There is no other mediator, no other salvation,

No other name by which we can be saved.
strength and my shield, my song of songs.
The Cornerstone that cannot be moved,
my Solid Rock.

Lover of my soul, giver of peace.
In Him only there is peace.

Here, 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

There are few
humans more helpless than a newborn,
yet that's how He came to us - fully God and fully man.
Totally sinless, so that He could be the final and only
complete sacrifice to pay for His people's many, many sins -
their sin.

Oh...they hated Him and what He has to say. When you
have lived under a system where your salvation depends on
your following the rules, your sacrifices, your works, it
strikes at your pride to hear - Look upon me and live.
When He died, Christ paid. There is no condemnation for
those who are in Him.

Here, 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 it's grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Brought with the precious blood of Christ

How His followers
must have felt. They had been so sure
that He was to rescue them. They didn't understand
what He was rescuing them from.

And the new day - the eighth day. Victory over the grave;
for all who believe in Him. I am not cursed. I am my Beloved's
and He is mine.

Here, I am bought and paid for.

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 ever pluck me from His hand
'Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand
No condemnation,
no fear of death. Oh, I fear
pain, but I don't fear dying. I belong to a God who is in
control of the universe - and that includes me. My faith does not
rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of GodHe holds my future, my destiny.No one, no demon, no person - not even me - can remove me.
He will not lose any of those who were given to Him.Some day I'll die. Some day He'll return. Either way,
I'll be with Him in eternity.
Here I stand.

Stem cells found in embryonic fluid.

Predectably - even though stem cells can be gotten this way, Dr. George Daley, a Harvard University stem cell researcher, said that finding raises the possibility that someday expectant parents can freeze amnio stem cells for future tissue replacement in a sick child without fear of immune rejection.Nonetheless, Daley said the discovery shouldn't be used as a replacement for human embryonic stem cell research (who began work last year to clone human embryos to produce stem cells), says that this is "not a substitute for human embryonic stem cells."

No, no...of course not.
