Happy Saint Patrick's Day/In Christ Alone

Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone!  In honor of today, I thought I would write about one of my favorite contemporary hymns written by an Irish composer, Keith Getty, and an English composer, Stuart Townend.  

"In Christ Alone," the world-renowned hymn has been recorded by numerous artists over the past decade—including Owl City, Natalie Grant and Newsboys—and is a classic sung in churches around the globe.  I love using this great anthem for gathering, preparation, and even communion.  It can be intimate and prayerful, or big and powerful as a worship song.  Although it is a contemporary hymn, it has that traditional hymn style and feel and really will resonate with young and old worshipers alike.  

Enjoy this great live version sung by Keith's wife Kristyn, and Happy St. Patrick's day.
