Verse 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

Verse 2
When long appears my toilsome race,
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;

Verse 3
His oath, His covenant, and blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When every earthly prop gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;

Verse 4
When the last trumpet's
voice shall sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Robed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
