My Hope is Built

   G                 D7
My hope is built on nothing less
      Am              D7       G
Than Jesusí blood and righteousness;
                     D7
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
    Am	           D7     G
But wholly lean on Jesusí name.


Chorus:

   G          C     C
On Christ the solid Rock I stand;
          G         D7
All other ground is sinking sand.
     G    Em        D7      G
All other ground is sinking sand.


When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.


His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.


When He shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in Him be found!
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

All other ground is sinking sand.
