Hundreds of Classic Hymns contain lines, verses, and choruses describing the Lord Jesus as our Anchor, our Hope, our Stay. Such is the Classic Hymn “The Solid Rock”. Read slowly or sing the lines below and take to heart the Truths that will indeed give hope to your heart:
“The Solid Rock”
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.
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.
On Christ, the Solid Rock, I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand.
