I was thinking about how so many people have been easily duped into thinking that their hope is in a man, our new president and it made me recall the song about how my hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ love and righteousness.
The Lord does not want us to put our hope in man and government. It will always disappoint and this instance it will lead us down an out of control spiral.
My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less
by Edward Mote
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;
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.
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.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
