The Solid Rock

14 Feb

This great old hymn has been rolling around in my mind all morning.

My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly trust in 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.

Chorus

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.

Chorus

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.
