On Christ the Solid Rock (key of Bbm)

BbmMy hope is built on Fmnothing Bbm Fmless

BbmThan Jesus blood and FmrighteousBbm Fmness;

F#I dare not G#trust the sweetest Bbmframe,

F#But wholly G#lean on Jesus' BbmName.



F#On Christ, the G#solid Rock, I Bbmstand;

G#All other ground is sinking Bbmsand.


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
