The Solid Rock

P6016420If you work these words into your life,
you are like a smart carpenter
who built his house on solid rock.
Rain poured down, the river flooded,
a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house.
It was fixed to the rock.
Matthew 7:24-25
(The Message)

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.

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.
Dressed in His 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.

    Start saving your pennies now for an Alaskan cruise as soon as your hubby retires. It is something EVERYone should be able to see. :))
