#272: The Solid Rock

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus blood and righteousness;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.[audio

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand —

All other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand.

2

When darkness veils His lovely face,

I rest on His unchanging grace;

In ev’ry high and stormy gale

My anchor holds within the veil.

REFRAIN

3

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.

REFRAIN

4

When He shall come with trumpet sound,

O may I then in Him be found,

Dressed in His righteousness alone,

Faultless to stand before the throne.

REFRAIN
