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.

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

I have been singing the refrain most of this morning and had to look up the lyrics since I had them all jumbled up. What a wonderful song and message! it is uplifting and gives me more reason to look to Christ! Praise the Lord!

Cedar Springs, Michigan, United States

I woke up with part of this song being sung, by a man's voice, I had to figure it out. It was very faint... I wondered if it was Jesus singing.... the last verse is

When He shall come with trumpet soundh, may I then in Him be found;

In Him, my righteousness, alone,

Faultless to stand before the throne... I had been dreaming all night about "being ready" this song gave me hope.

This song confirms the promise that we put our trust not in man because God has the final say, He alone is our hope, God promise never to leave us nor forsake us. Praise be the name of the Lord!

My hope is built on nothing less,

Than Jesus Christ, my Righteousness.

This song makes me smile when I'm down.

It gives me hope when I'm hopeless.

On Christ the solid rock I will always stand.
