MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS

Edward Mote, William B. Bradbury

 

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

* On Christ the Solid Rock I stand!
All other ground is sinking sand!
All other ground is sinking sand!

When darkness hides His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the vale
(back to *)

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
(back to *)

When He shall come with trumpet sound, o sure I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne
(back to *)
