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.

The Lord is wonderfully faithful with His promises to us. Depression and being cast down when we praise His name! They have to leave. I’ve struggled with that as well. I pray for those who struggle with it and rebuke it in Jesus name! We are not alone. Yes if you have asked Jesus into your heart and asked the forgiveness of your sins He is faithful and He abides in you and you in Him, He will find you faultless when the trumpet sounds! Yes it’s amazing how Jesus can whisper in our ear/hearts and minds words of comfort. My goodness I read these writings and it’s so wonderfully comforting to see God helping all His children. Everywhere around the world He hears our prayers, He sees our needs, He hears our cries and reaches down and blesses us. Never, never give up. Keep going when despair comes praise His name when we are down cast for in His praises He inhabits His people. I grew up with this song and was singing it. The first verse I had wrong I was saying His blood of righteousness. I love you my brothers and sisters in Christ!!! God is so good! He has delivered me from anxiety and panic attacks that followed with nausea. It was a sin I was harboring, a hidden sin I was unaware of. The Holy Spirit directed me to it during devotions. He set me free from it. My heart can sing even more and adore Him even deeper yet!

I didn't know all the words to this hymn until I logged onto your website. I was humming only the parts that I knew. I am so glad the Holy Spirit prompted me to look for it. It has made me glad inside to know that now I know all the words to this beautiful hymn.

This wonderful morning I woke up full of the Holy Spirit, then I heard this song in my spirit so I started singing it and praying. I had to look up for the lyrics because I was mixing up.

Christ the solid rock.

The last verse is what we are eagerly waiting for, the trumpet sound!

I just pray that I will fautlessly stand before the throne of glory. Amen.

Indeed all other grounds are sinking Sound.

Other things perish but Jesus does not perish

Other things die but Jesus does not
