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.

My mind was beginning to fill with fear and worry this afternoon. Then this song came to me: On Christ the Solid Rock I stand all other ground is sinking sand... Thank you Lord for reminding me who to turn to when the storms of life are tossing me all over the place. You are truly Jehovah Shalom, God of Peace!

Before waking, remembered hearing the melody and words: "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."

2:30 AM canโ€™t sleep started thinking about Christ the solid rock this song came to me, I didnโ€™t know all the words to it so I looked it up it was one of the first songs I sang as a Christian and thereโ€™s so much hope and strength and encouragement built into this song to truly express the Living Rock Jesus Christ, To Him be all Glory and Praise.
