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.

It's only You at the centre of it all oh Lord, in you alone will I put my trust and I believe You would see me through this day and forever. Thank You Lord Jesus for Your mercies that keeps us through the night and Your faithfulness that wakes us up each morning. Thank You for loving us!

Our Lord Jesus Christ is ever faithful. He’s never too late or too early. Just trust and obey Him in all things. If I can testify of His goodness and mercy, anyone can. He answered me when all hope was lost and when everyone thought it was over for me. Our God is good and sweet.

Jesus Christ is the reason for our existence. When we are faced with life challenges as we'd been pre-warned. by the scripture; While looking unto Him this hymns readily comes handy to soothe our spirit man and help us to navigate our way through the trial of our faith without hurts. Thank you dear Jesus!

Jesus is my hope and He will not fail. I’ve been meditating on this hymn and it is so true. Everything else in our life may shift, but not Jesus our rock!

Jesus the solid rock; No matter what the wicked may do they cannot penetrate to destroy my life; because Christ is the solid Rock I stand and beside Him there is no God.
