My hope is built on nothing less

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus' name.
  On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
  All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
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.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

The breadth of previous comments, the vast numbers of countries of residence, and the consistent mention of being "woken" to this song playing in their heart/mind tells me, again, of the love our Father has for us and that the Holy Spirit is alive and active in this world of turmoil!! Thank you, Jesus.

So long our hope was something less than Jesus' blood and righteousness.

We dared to trust another frame and failed to lean on Jesus' name.

Now darkness seems to veil His face. Do we too late appeal for grace?

Now in a high and stormy gale, have we that anchor 'yond the veil?

His oath, His covenant, His blood, of which availed amidst the flood,

When all around our soul gives way, should yet well be our hope and stay.

Then, when He comes with trumpet sound, in Him we shall indeed be found,

dressed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne!

On Christ, the solid Rock, we stand. All other ground is sinking sand.

This truly is a wonderful hymn which was sang during our devotion at 5am this morning. It reminded me of the All poweful God in whom I believe. Jesus Christ the Rock, the Head of the Corner Stone, the Solid Foundation. It is on Jesus' blood and Righteousness that my hope in the second coming of the Lord is built on.

The words of this hymn is so comforting.

My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus blood and righteousness.

We can trust in Jesus Christ, no matter what our trials and tribulations He will will be with us.

KJV Isaiah 43:2

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

With Christ in the vessel we can smile at our storms.

Be blessed today and always
