I don't really sing well but do so anyway. Songs like this thrill me down to my toes.

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til 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 guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
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

The tune is great, but it's really the lyrics that get to me. I makes me cry joyful tears. I need to memorize this one so I can walk around singing it all day. I do that with other songs. My family doesn't seem to mind too much, thankfully.

I theorize that my imperfect pitch is related to the Fall and the associated deterioration of Creation, and with new bodies things like pitch and brain capacity will be restored.

We will finally be what He created us to be. Happy Day!
