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.

Patterson, CA, United States

Soul touching and assuring that only Jesus Christ is the only solid rock upon which we can stand and will never fail nor be disappointed. The leadership of this world may fail you, your best friends can also fail, psychics will deceive, witch doctors are liars and will fail. They are all sinking sand. Only Jesus Christ who is the author and the finisher of your Faith will NEVER FAIL no matter what the situations may be.


Bronx, New York, United States

Woke up this morning with this encouraging song on my mind. Needed it, still need it, to stabilize my mind & spirit.

Thank You, Jesus, for this reminder that all other ground is sinking sand.

On my porch, light barely coming over the mountains, God gave me this old hymn for the morning. God is so good!

I woke up this morning and my mind stayed on Jesus.

Then this song came to my mind.

" Only Jesus!"

I woke this morning and the Holy Spirit brought this song into my spirit. What a song full of hope. Anything outside of Christ is sinking sand.

Lagos, Nigeria

A look at the happenings in the world and around us today shows how empty everything is especially when not hinged on Christ the Solid Rock. All other ground is, indeed, sinking sand!


Yes, my hope is in Him my solid rock...Christ Jesus.
