For the month of March, Steven & I are memorizing “On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand.” In the middle of a generation steeped in self-sufficiency, these words bring a breath of fresh beauty, real truth, and deep, deep encouragement.

Listen:

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

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

.
How often we try to find our hope in other places. We know better, but we do it over and over again anyway.

Let’s dwell on these words this week:

ON CHRIST.

All other ground is sinking sand. His grace never changes.
