A Simple Hymn


My Hope is Built
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.

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

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

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

The homes of this world are temporary, our bodies but a shell; our houses but a temporary resting place; school, jobs, buildings...everything is temporary.  But...Jesus is not!...He is a constant that never changes, His sacrifice was for us, His Father the ultimate foundation.
Jesus paid it all for us...we can do nothing to repay that debt, it was paid for us and is now 'free and clear'.  

What do we do every day to show our faith...to show the hope of Heaven...to show someone with no hope that being a child of God is a hope that never ends?

My faith cannot be disturbed by the things of this earth.  I sometimes sway a little bit because of depression but I will never, ever falter, nor will I fall...all because of Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for me....a lowly sinner unworthy of even a small morsel of the mercy He showed by dying on that cross.  Such a horrible, terrible, painful death and He did it for me.  To say I'm unworthy is not enough, I know I'm undeserving but He withstood the pain and agony...
for me...and for you.
Do you know Christ?
I would love to tell you about Him....Jesus, the sweetest name I know!
