Standing on the Rock

A life built on the spiritual foundation of divine Truth is unshakable and secure.

When I was growing up, I attended a mainstream Protestant Sunday School, where we sang a beloved hymn: “My Hope is Built on Nothing Less” by Edward Mote with William B. Bradbury’s melody “Solid Rock.” We belted out this hymn at the end of class every Sunday. Since we were just kids, we didn’t think much at the time about what we were singing. It was just so fun to sing this hymn together. But the lyrics stayed with me, and all through my life I have been grateful for them:

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

Cast off those mental tatters!
