My Hope is Built

G D7 My hope is built on nothing less Am D7 G Than Jesus' blood and righteousness; D7 I dare not trust the sweetest frame, Am D7 G But wholly lean on Jesus' 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. Alternative arrangement E C#m F#m B A F#m A B E My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness. E C#m F#m B A F#m A B E I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly trust in Jesus' name. E A E C#m F#m B On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand; A F#m B E All other ground is sinking sand.
