Keith Getty and Stuart Townend's contemporary hymn is simply stunning in this Lloyd Larson arrangement. It builds from the simple affirmation, "In Christ alone my hope is found; he is my light, my strength, my song," then traces the birth, death and crowning glory of the resurrected Lord, who "bursting forth in glorious day, up from the grave rose again," culminating with the final return of Christ. A hint of The Solid Rock at the end is the perfect coda to this powerful setting, while the optional brass and percussion heighten the dramatic impact and set it apart from others.

This is a more dramatic arrangement of this Getty/Townsend piece than the others that are available. This reviewer finds it a little too dramatic for this classic, but many churches may prefer it due to the resurrection theme at the end. It also incorporates "The Solid Rock," which may be desirable as well. Good part-writing and accompaniment by Larson.

The Bottom Line

Pros
More dramatic arrangement of this piece than others.
Cons
Perhaps too dramatic
