MY HOPE IS BUILT

  Lyrics

Verse 1
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

Chorus
On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

Verse 2
When darkness seems to hide his face
I rest on his unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

Verse 3
His oath, his covenant, his blood
Support me in the whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all my hope and stay

Verse 4
When he shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in him be found
Dressed in his righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne

  Sample Introduction

The opening lines of this hymn are a wonderful summary of the gospel of grace: “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.” May we stand firm on Jesus, our rock. Let’s encourage one another to do just that.
