>the solid rock… be encouraged

>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…

when darkness veils his lovely face,
i rest on his unchanging grace;
in every high and stormy gale
my anchor holds within the veil.
on Christ the solid rock I stand
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand…

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.
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand…

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.
on Christ the solid rock I stand
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand…

the solid rock; by Edward Mote
