Gospel Songs Mp3

Anchor Hymns is the latest Integrity Music multi-artist project which was unveiled last month with a debut single. Starting with reaching into the past, the initial releases will cover some of Integrity’s most iconic songs and reframe them in a modern and musical way; now taking on one of the most enduring hymns of recent years as their second single, ‘In Christ Alone’. Written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend, this song has spread far and wide within the global church as it tells the good news of Jesus Christ so richly and succinctly: “from life’s first cry, to final breath.”

This Anchor Hymns version of ‘In Christ Alone’ features established artist and liturgist Sandra McCracken as well as singer-songwriter Antoine Bradford, whose voices blend beautifully on a warm and blues-y soundscape. Commenting on the arrangement of the new single that includes an improvised musical section, Sandra McCracken hopes that, “our interpretation of this hymn will help to be able to be sung in more churches, even with simple instrumentation.” ‘In Christ Alone’ has been a pillar in the Church’s song book and Anchor Hymns hope to continue the trend, as Antoine says that it “echoes the goodness of God in the face of Jesus Christ… it’s in Him alone that lasting fulfilment and eternal hope are found.” The heart behind Anchor Hymns being to create songs of substance from both a lyrical, theological, and musical frame shines through their second release. Concluding with a nod to what it yet to come, Sandra McCracken notes, “Anchor Hymns is a special collaboration […] I love seeing this diverse community of musicians come together around a desire to write and celebrate hymns of the faith.” This new version of ‘In Christ Alone’ hints that something new is happening here…

“In Christ Alone” is available now.

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
Here in the death of Christ I live
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 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
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
