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.

Amen, in all the storms and challenges of life I trust in Jesus and that hope keeps me going. Come, Lord Jesus, to those whose lives are empty, they are lost and leaning on their humanism to get them through.

This song restored my Joy and brought unimaginable rest to my spirit when it was song in Church the last two weeks.

I went through a stormy gale which I thought I couldn’t come out of, in the face of shame and destruction I placed my hope on Jesus and his righteousness.

Praise be to God, when all hope seemed lost God prevailed!!!

I JUST POSTED THE FOLLOWING TO FACEBOOK AND SOMEHOW IT LED ME TO THIS PAGE)

I just read a sincere prayer request that touched my heart deeply. I sincerely prayed for the need and then went back and read the short request again. I’m in absolutely no way making any insincere remarks about the request, just what God touched my heart with as a result of reading the short, but to the point, request for help.

The request was for a special need and that God was the only hope. Hmmmm, my mind went to spinning.

GOD IS our ONLY HOPE! We use doctors, research, home remedies, surgeries, some even go to the evil presences in the world for help, BUT, GOD IS our ONLY hope! NOONE or NOTHING in this world can do ANYTHING without HIS allowing it. We can get a temporary fix from all the above sources, but GOD IS our ultimate permanent fixer. He IS our only hope for making it in this evil world and our ONLY escape in the end.

I surely pray HE is your only hope and that you WHOLLY rely upon HIM for your every need.

This also brings about a favorite song of mine which follows:

MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus blood and righteousness,

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

But wholly lean on Jesus Name.

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.

Oh Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand.

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. ” Romans 15:13 KJV

JESUS CHRIST, our ONLY hope in this evil and wicked world.

Those reading here from around the globe I ask for your prayers for my niece who is having complications from Stage 4 colon cancer. I am standing on God’s Word especially Mark 5:21-43. We need a miracle.

Today after I done with everything I entered my bedroom and this song started ringing in my heart.

This song has been coming to my mind since yesterday when I was going to apply for a job and I still woke up with the song again this morning.. And this has given me assurance that Jesus has already settled this job for me...

“My hope is built on nothing less”. I woke up early with these words for my morning song. What a joy it was to find this site and verify the lyrics that had welled up out of my heart. Above all, however, was the joy I have in now discovering that on this site are beautiful members of the international body of Christ, adding their voices of love and thanksgiving for Christ, the solid Rock on which we stand united and in prayer for one another’s needs. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
