My Hope Is Built

O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God! Even now your enemies are in tumult; those who hate you have raised their heads.

Psalm 83:1-2
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.

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,
oh, may I then in him be found;
in him, my righteousness, alone,
faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.
 Edward Mote (1834)

Rescue us from the evil one.
 Matthew 6:13
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
In times of fear, in times of temptation, help me to trust in your strength, O God.
✙ 
After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
