My Hope Is Built


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.

RefrainOn Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

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.

3. His oath, his covenant, his blood
Support me in the whelming flood.
When every earthly prop gives way
He then is still my strength and stay.

4. When the last trumpet voice shall sound,
O may we then in him be found,
Robed in his righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the thronev
