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.

In my quiet time this morning, I'm reading of God's grace and unmerited favor. My spirit began trying to sing this song but I struggled with finding the words because it's been a while since I sang it. I looked it up here and then as I sang the lyrics, my spirit SOARED! It's like a super shot of condensed Scripture! Hallelujah!

"When darknes veils His lovely face I rest on His unchanging GRACE. ; In evry high and stormy gale, My Anchor holds within the vale

I cherish this verse for it’s because of Jesus unhanging grace why I am alive this morning. I went through a turbulent night because of a nerve pain in my neck. But I place my hope on the Solid Rock to navigate me throughout the night, and He did. The Holy Spirit brings the song to my heart.

I am thankful for this song to inspire me to keep trusting in Jesus Christ my Solid Rock. Amen!

This famous hymn let's me know that no matter the problem, situation, trial or circumstance; that we can trust, rely and rest on God's faithfulness and purpose for our lives. "He is the solid rock". Jeremiah 29:11

Stanza two and three has really shows how deeply God's love for me. On you only the solid rock I stand.

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.
