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.

Indeed on Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. The last song we sung at the funeral of my best friend Kathleen. She believed and put all her faith in God, and I believe she is with the Lord.

Surely Christ is my solid rock and in Him I shall continue to stand till the end of time. I just remembered those days of my tears and crying before His presence. But today I look back and see that He fullfiled all that I asked for and still doing even more. I know no regrets at all. Indeed, He is my solid rock no matter what situation.

Surely all ground, political, academic, economics etc are all sinking sand (freaking shadows).

On Jesus Christ and only on Him is solid rock.... eternal life.
