In Christ Alone
All four verses of "In Christ Alone" are lettered in Fraktur with the 4-part music lettered in a style similar to the hand-lettered vellum Latin hymn book pages in the 1500's. Psalm 62:2a is lettered on either side of the hymn title, to emphasis the exclusive nature of our only hope, the solid Rock, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The backdrop of red reminds us of His sacrifice on our behalf, which is referenced in verses 2 and 3.
Behind the Art
I had the privilege of growing up singing the doctrinally-rich hymns of the faith. Many of the contemporary Christian music is lacking in solid doctrine with Scriptural backing. This is not the case with this recently-written hymn written by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty. It reminds me of two of my favorite hymns, "The Solid Rock" and "Jesus Priceless Treasure". These hymns powerfully proclaim the truth of Christ!
