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.

It’s easy to say when things are fine, it’s easy to say when trials come ... but ... when the chips are really down, believe me, it’s hard, hard, hard.

Christ is only solid Rock in the universe. Everything else that we think we know or think we can depend on can disappear in an instant. All other ground is sinking sand! Realizing this will make us desperate to cling to this Rock and to Him alone.
