Theme: Life in Christ

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.

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.

3.  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.

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.
