Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

460. My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less

1 My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
on Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand.

2 When all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay.
His oath, his covenant, his blood
support me in the whelming flood.

3 When darkness veils his lovely face
I rest on his unchanging grace;
safe in his sure, unending love,
till gathered to his rest above.

4 When he shall come with trumpet sound,
and I will then in him be found,
dressed in his righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before the throne.
