My hope is built on nothing less

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 seems to veil His face
I rest on His unchanging grace;
in every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil.


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.
