Yesterday’s hymn presented the gospel in a clear form. Charles Wesley had a way with words and hymns that is unparalleled in today’s songwriting for the Church. You can look at yesterday’s hymn here: Hymn of the Day: And Can It Be.
The hymn for today really isn’t a hymn. It is a modern chorus. Yet, if anyone could match up to the power of Wesley’s hymns it would be Getty and Townsend. They have provided perhaps one of the best modern worship songs for the Church. This song’s focus is one of the five Solas of the Reformation: Solus Christus. Christ Alone. The only way to God is through Jesus Christ. No other means can get you there. Your hope for salvation is found nowhere else, but in Christ alone. Christ alone satisfies the wrath of God. Christ alone had the authority to lay his own life down and take it back up again. Christ alone secures our final destiny. No power of Hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck you from his hand!
