The Solid Rock
Words by Edward Mote
Music by William B. Bradbury

Matthew 7:25
"And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and
beat upon that house; and it fell not:  for it was founded upon a 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.

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

          When darkness veils His lovely face,
          I rest on His unchanging grace;
          In ev'ry high and stormy gale,
          My anchor holds against the veil.

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

          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.

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

          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.

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