    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;
