My hope is built on nothing less

1
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.
2
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
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.
4
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.

We used to sing this hymn in a methodist church when growing up. Admist the challenges I am facing now the Lord has inspired me to look closely inti the words hence I Google it. Wow. I'm blown away. Surely I stand on my Lord Jesus Christ, my solid rock! I shall praise You forever and ever. To anyone facing any form of adversity I leave you Psalm 91 Shalom Shalom

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.

I have my hope in place which is Jesus Christ. This is an assurance indeed. Surely all other ground is sinking sand.

Christ our solid rock! All other ground is sinking sand. Oh Lord may I be found in You when I stand before the throne - faultless and without blemish in Your righteousness alone. Lord please prepare me fully before I appear before the throne. Amen.
