The Solid Rock (Live) - Derek Charles Johnson

cancercrossJun 20 2013,

After hearing some different melodies in my head, I made some embellishments to this beloved hymn. There is a slight alteration to the verses and to main refrain (or chorus). This version also felt like it needed a bridge section, so I added that. I had a lot of fun preparing this song; it has always been one of my favorite hymns. Hope you will enjoy it! And please check out some of my other tunes on my YouTube and SoundCloud pages.

Verse 1
My hope is built upon nothing less
Than Jesus' precious blood and righteousness
I simply dare not trust the sweetest frame
But 'ever wholly lean on Jesus' name

Verse 2
When darkness seems to veil His lovely face
I will rest on His unchanging grace
And tho' the winds may blow in the stormy gale
My anchor always holds within the veil

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
My foundation is secure
I'm standing on His promises
For I know they will endure
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

Verse 3
His oath, His covenant, His precious blood
Support me in the overwhelming flood
And when all around my soul gives way
He is all my help and hope and stay

Don't let me wander from all of the wonder
I've found in You
Lord keep me grounded, it's true I have found that
All my hope's in You
