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.

Truly our hope should only be built on Jesus Christ our redeemer. Not on materistic earthly things. Let's build our trust in God each day

Someone has got the words wrong.

It should be

First verse... Jesus’ blood and righteousness’

Forth verse... clothed in His righteousness alone...

Any righteousness I have is because of the righteousness Christ has imputed to me through His sacrifice and shed blood

1Peter 3:18 Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.

Boy, did this ever stir up a ruckus at church.

If you're going to change the words - please tell us next time.

My righteousness has nothing to do with it - it's Jesus' blood and righteousness which is the forgiveness of God and the Gift of the grace of God.
