MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS

1] My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus blood and righteousness;

No merit claim of my own i claim,

But wholly trust in Jesus’ name.

        On Christ,the solid rock,I stand;

        All other ground is sinking sand.

2] When darkness seems to veil his face,

I rest on His unchanging grace;

In every high and stormy gale,

My anchor holds within the veil.

3} His promise,covenant and blood,

Are my defence against the flood;

When life is nearly washed away,

His hand shall hold me in that day.

4} When He shall come with trumpet’s sound,                                                                                    O, may I safe in Him be found,

Clothed in His righteousness alone,

Faultless to stand before His throne.
