On Christ, The Solid Rock, I Stand

We have so much going on in our lives right now. I accepted a new position at work, as Executive Assistant to the EVP of Operations, which I started training for today. Thankfully, it comes with a decent raise too (which covers Bryan’s medical insurance costs). And Bryan finally found a job as Security Staff at a local hospital! He starts Monday, after 4 months of no job. We’re so thankful for how God is providing. Also, our house is still on the market and, being Spring, we’re finally getting some showings. Still a lot up in the air, but we “rest in His unchanging grace.”

We sang this song at prayer meeting this past Wednesday night and I can’t get it out of my head (which is a good thing). I hadn’t sang this song in ages, and I don’t know why. It’s so full of rich truth and encouragement! And I still had it memorized from my youth! The new tunes are great, but I still love the original melody!

“1 My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

Refrain:

“On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

“2 When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

Refrain

“3 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.

Refrain

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

Refrain:

“On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.”

Words: Edward Mote, circa 1834; first appeared in Mote’s Hymns of Praise, 1836. Music: Solid Rock, William B. Bradbury, 1863.
