Free Sacred Piano Duet – In Christ Alone

One of my graduating students asked me if we could play a duet together at her graduation/senior recital. She was especially interested in a duet of In Christ Alone. Well, after searching for such a duet extensively, we finally decided that the only way we were going to come up with something we really liked was to arrange it ourselves. So we set to work!

Composing/arranging is definitely not my strength, but we do have a duet to play now! Praise the Lord! You can listen to our arrangement here. And, if you’re interested, you can also download and print a copy of the sheet music.

For those unfamiliar with this hymn, here are the lyrics. I tried to capture the emotion of each verse as I worked on the arrangement.

In Christ Alone
by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

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
‘Till 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 it’s 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
‘Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

Thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful piece! Surely God will bless you as he did me when I listened to it!
