771. My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less

1 My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
no merit of my own I claim,
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.

2 When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
in ev'ry high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]

3 His oath, his covenant, his blood
support me in the raging flood;
when all supports are washed away,
he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]

4 When he shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in him be found
clothed in his righteousness alone,
redeemed to stand before the throne. [Refrain]
