My Hope is Built on Nothing Less

Verse 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.


On Christ the solid Rock I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

Verse 2

When darkness seems to veils His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

Verse 3

His oath, His covenant, and blood
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

Verse 4

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in Him be found!
Clad in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
