Sunday's Song- My Hope is Built

Well, here I sit at home for the second week in a row.
I really wanted to go to church today, but the baby's
cough is still so bad.  And he's pretty ill, so he
probably wouldn't have been able to sit through church
anyway. Here's a song of hope for all of us!


My Hope is Built

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.

Refrain:
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 every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil.
(Refrain)

3. His oath, his covenant, his blood
supports 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:
On Christ the solid rock I stand,
all other ground is sinking sand;
all other ground is sinking sand.
