So this song has been on my heart this week, so in my style (slightly resembling that of an ugly step sister) I decided I would just make it fit into a 7 word format.
The part that has my heart beating this week is the trifecta of His oath, His Covenant, His blood – just a huge wow there in my heart.
Well – here you go – my tweaked version of Edward Mote’s classic hymn
Oh Christ the Solid Rock ~ Edward Mote
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ (precious) blood and (dazzling) righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ (Sweet) name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand, (again)
All other ground is sinking sand. (amen)
When darkness veils His (Jesus) lovely face,
I rest on His (Jesus) unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale, (Yikes)
My anchor (Jesus) holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood (trinity)
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;
(Impeccably) Dressed in His (absolute) righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne. (WOW)
