Christ Alone Is Our Salvation

Full Text

1 Christ alone is our salvation,
Christ the rock on which we stand;
Other than this sure foundation
Will be found but sinking sand.
Christ, His cross and resurrection,
Is alone the sinners' plea;
At the throne of God's perfection
Nothing else can set him free.

2 We have all things, Christ possessing:
Life eternal, second birth,
Present pardon, peace, and blessing
While we tarry here on earth;
And by faith's anticipation,
Foretaste of the joy above
Freely giv'n us with salvation
By the Father in His love.

3 When we perfect joy shall enter,
'Tis in Him our bless will rise;
He's the essence, soul, and center
Of the glory in the skies.
In redemption's wondrous story
Planned before our parents' fall,
From the cross unto the glory
Jesus Christ is all in all.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
