 My hope is built on nothing less

 

  1. My hope is built on nothing less

than blood and righteousness.

I dare not trust the sweetest frame

but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

 

Refrain:

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;

all other ground is sinking sand,

all other ground is sinking sand.

 

  1. In ev’ry rough and stormy gale,

my anchor holds within the vale.

When all around my soul gives way,

he then is all my hope and stay. 

 

  1. Not earth, nor hell, my soul can move;

I rest upon unchanging love.

I trust his righteous character,

his counsel, promise, and his pow’r.

 

  1. 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.
