Day 19 – A song that you want to play at your funeral

An easy choice today - In Christ Alone has been one of the songs I've wanted at my funeral pretty much since the first time I heard it.

The song is written by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, and I'm not going to say anything else today except to share some of the lyrics and this link to the song.

[...] 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 power of hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck me from His hand 'til He returns or calls me home, here in the power of Christ I'll stand.
