When I think of hope, a hymn immediately comes to my mind. We sang this hymn on a regular basis as a kind of norm at one of my previous church homes, but now when I think about it, this was anything but a normal song, it was God ordained to inspire and to give us a hope.

The hymn is called “The Solid Rock.” The first line of this song says, “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’s name.” The chorus says, “On Christ, the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.”

This is what hope means to me; my hope is on none other than my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, who shed His blood on a hill called Calvary for my freedom, for my salvation, for my right to have life eternal. The last verse of this songs says, “When He shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in Him be found; Dressed in His righteousness alone, FAULTLESS to stand before the throne.”

Because of Jesus resurrection my hope is not in vain. My hope is built on that solid rock who is my Jesus Christ, there is no other name by which we can be saved. To God be all the Glory!!! Amen
