Text Information:

This hymn represents a Kenyan adaptation of the gospel hymn, “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less” (see no. 353), a connection that is most obvious in their similar refrains. Both the original and derived texts affirm that our hope is not in ourselves but in Christ’s redeeming work.
