My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less (key of Db)

My Dbhope is built on Ab/Cnothing less

Than Gb/BbJesus blood and Ab/CrighteousDbness;

I Dbdare not trust the Ab/Csweetest frame,

But Gb/Bbwholly lean on Ab/CJesus' DbName. (1/4 rest)


On DbChrist, the solid GbRock, I stand;

All Db/Fother ground is Db/Fsinking Absand,

All Gb/Bbother ground is Ab/Csinking Dbsand.


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
Clothed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne!

Rev. Edward Mote, English Baptist minister, c. 1834
