My Hope Is Built

Edward Mote, 1797-1874 
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;
            all other ground is sinking sand.

2.         When Darkness veils his lovely face,
            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
            supports me in the whelming flood.
            When all around my soul gives way,
            he then is all my hope and stay.

4.         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!

Grace is the “The unmerited favour of God, made known through Jesus Christ, and expressed supremely in the redemption and full forgiveness of sinners through faith in Jesus Christ.”-- Martin H. Manser

CONCLUSION: 2 Corinthians 6:2
