MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTH-ING LESS

I REST ON HIS UN-CHANG-ING GRACE

MY AN-CHOR HOLDS WITH IN THE VEIL

HIS OATH, HIS COVE-NANT HIS BLOOD
D   G              D     A   D
SUP-PORT ME IN THE WHELM-ING FLOOD
     D                   A

HE THEN IS ALL MY HOPE AND STAY

WHEN HE SHALL COME WITH TRUM-PET SOUND

OH MAY  I  THEN IN HIM BE FOUND
        D                     A 
DRESSED IN HIS RIGHTEOUS-NESS A-LONE
D     G                D    A   D
FAULT-LESS TO STAND BE-FORE THE THRONE
