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.

Lovely songs from this site, but the piano is often too fast for my liking.

I like the change with highlighting the verses and automatically stopping. This music enhances my worship, as I now live alone.

Christ our solid rock... only in Christ we can have faith without we can have faith that can produce the kind of life God want us to live ... with that same faith Abraham lived and it was credited to him for righteousness... Faith connects us to the right life God want us to live on earth .. God bless the platform I am blessed by it..

I have a 2020 college grad who was scheduled to go to the Philippines July 1 with the Peace Corps. Her world has been rocked and I come back to this song because we have a kingdom that is unshakable, and we have access to it through the blood of Jesus. It is still really hard to live this experientially right now. We should know and believe that fear is not of the Spirit and it is only God who creates a marvelous and still inexplicable intricate immune system and it is God who measures our days on this earth. When the world is screaming something else it is hard to hear Gods voice and live in his truth.

Just this week, A friend of my told me that his adult son had taken his life. Suicide with a gun. He part of the reason was because of being stuck inside because of covid 19. He said there were other reasons but basically he thinks his son just gave up hope. I do wish I would had known the guy and spoke to him about the Hope our faith is built on.

There is no other secure place to stand, but on the solid Rock of CHRIST Jesus. In HIM there is hope, joy, peace, comfort and salvation. I am grateful for one who penned these words to encourage the heart and spirit of the Believers. Thank you for sharing this timeless classic. GOD bless!!

The hymn that I have sung in church since I was a child has been running through my mind lately in this uncertain time of the corona virus and climate change. I needed to hear this melody to bring me back to Christ my Rock.
