My Hope



The Solid Rock

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.

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)

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)

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)

Edward Mote
1836

You know, when you wrote about laying on the cement while William played, I thought about how I wanted to get a lawn chair for you, thought about contacting Will or something, but all the time, the Lord had it covered! "That's Just Like His Great Love", the title of another great old hymn that reminds us of how much our God loves us. As I recall, it says, "It's just like Jesus to roll the clouds away, it's just like Jesus to keep me day by day, it's just like Jesus all along the way, it's just like His great love".

Love this. Have you heard the song "In Christ Alone"? One of my faves, and it samples this refrain a couple of times. Lovely. Just stopped by to say thanks for entering my Support the Troops giveaway and for following! I’ll be drawing two winners on Tuesday. Hope you’re one of them!
