403. My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less

1 My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' love and righteousness;
I dare not trust this earthly 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 shadows veil my Savior's face,
I rest upon unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]

3 Christ's oath and covenant and blood
support me in the rising flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
Christ then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]

4 When Christ shall come with trumpet sound,
oh, may I then in Love be found,
Dressed in his righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before the throne. [Refrain]
