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.

God put this hymn on my heart during my devotion this morning & I looked up the lyrics to find these comments from my brothers & sisters in Christ from around the world. How wonderful to know God's people, my people, are everywhere & we are praising Him together!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

This song makes me feel stronger. Whenever I am singing this song I see host of angels around me because it connects me to heaven.

This has always been one of my favorite hymns post coming into relationship with Christ Jesus. It most precious line states "all other ground is sinking sand." Anything that edges God out is truly sinking sand.
