My Hope

My hope is built on nothing lessThan Jesus’ blood and righteousness.

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.
Refrain
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,

All other ground is sinking sand;

All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness seems to hide His face,

I rest on His unchanging grace.

In every high and stormy gale,

My anchor holds within the veil.
Refrain
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
When He shall come with trumpet sound,

Oh may I then in Him be found.

Dressed in His righteousness alone,

Faultless to stand before the throne.
Refrain

This wonderful old hymn is so true. Jesus is everything to the Christian. In Him we put all our hope. He is our rock and our salvation.

1 Thessalonians 5:9

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
