life changing lyrics.

I just wanted to share the words to a couple songs. They're pretty awesome. 

"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
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 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.

"Heart of Worship"

When the music fades, all is stripped away, and I simply come;
Longing just to bring, something that's of worth
That will bless your heart.
I'll bring you more than a song,
For a song in itself is not what you have required
You search much deeper within,
Through the way things appear;
You're looking into my heart.

I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You, its all about You, Jesus
I'm sorry Lord for the thing I've made it, 
When it's all about You, all about You, Jesus.

King of endless worth, no one could express, how much You deserve;
Though I'm weak and poor, all I have is Yours, every single breath.
I'll bring you more than a son, 
For a song in itself is not what you have required
You search much deeper within,
Through the way things appear;
You're looking into my heart.

"God be Merciful to Me."
God be merciful to me; on thy grace I rest my plea.
Plenteous in compassion thou, blot out my transgressions now;
Wash me, make me pure within; cleanse, o cleanse me from my sin.

My transgressions I confess; grief and guilt my soul oppress.
I have sinned against thy grace, and provoked thee to thy face.
I confess thy judgment just; speechless, I thy mercy trust.

I am evil, born in sin; thou desirest truth within.
Thou alone my Savior art, teach thy wisdom to my heart.
Thy grace bestow, wash me whiter than the snow.

Broken, humbled to the dust by thy wrath and judgment just,
Let my contrite heart rejoice, and in gladness hear thy voice;
From my sins o hide thy face, blot them out with boundless grace.
Gracious God, my heart renew, make my spirit right and true.
Cast me not away from Thee, let thy spirit dwell in me;
Thy salvation's joy impart, steadfast make my willing heart.

Sinner then shall learn from me, and return O God to thee.
Savior all my guilt remove, and my tongue shall sing thy love.
Touch my silent lips, O Lord, and my mouth shall praise accord.
