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.

I have not found any appropriate words to express what my spirit sees whenever this hymn is sung.

I absolutely see all other grounds, be it money, fame, education, friends, parents, wealth, name them! I see all of them SINKING as the hymn says!

Indeed On CHRIST the only solid Rock I will forever stand for all other ground is just sinking sand.

Glory to JESUS.

This has been one of my favorite song that minister to my heart and making me to focus on God and absolutely trust in Him, what profit it is when we have everything and lose His presence.

Christian hymns are going into extinction in our modern day churches. These hymns are powerful and loaded with messages for each particular moment. We will lose our heritage as Christians if we watch and do nothing. We must revive the use of hymn books in our churches and worship centres.
