511. The Solid Rock

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 seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In ev'ry high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]

4 When He shall come with trumpet sound,,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne. [Chorus]
