Nothing Less) Lyrics and Story

My Hope Is Built On Nothing Else / On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand
History
My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less or On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand is the best-known
hymn of Edward Mote who wrote it in 1834. The original title of this hymn was, "The
Immutable Basis for a Sinner's Hope".
Edward Mote was the pastor of Rehoboth Baptist Church in Horsham West Sussex in the
United Kingdom.
It looks as if the inspiration for this hymn came from Christ parable of the wise and
foolish builders. In the parable, Christ speaks of the foolish builder who built his house on
sinking sand while the wise builder built his on solid rock. As you would imagine a storm
easily swept away the one built on sand.
Christ is the solid rock upon which we can build
our house of faith. Any other foundation is like
one on sand and will ultimately fail.
On the authorship of this song Mr. Mote's
explanation, communicated to the Gospel
Herald, is:—
"One morning it came into my mind as I went to
labor, to write a hymn on the ‘Gracious
Experience of a Christian.' As I went up Holborn
I had the chorus,
‘On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand.’
My Hope is Built on Nothing Less Lyrics
Below are the lyrics of this popular hymn:
2/4
1 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.
Refrain:
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.
2 When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
in every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]
3 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. [Refrain]
4 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. [Refrain]

When We Walk With The Lord Hymn (Trust And Obey) - History of
hymn
When We Walk With The Lord History This hymn came about from an incident at one of
Dwight L Moody's revival meetings in 1887. A young man who had just given his life to
the Lord Jesus Christ was reportedly heard saying, 'I am not quite sure - I am going to
trust and obey.' Daniel B Towner- Trust and Obey The music director of the Moody Bible
Institute, Professor Towner, was present at the meeting when these words were uttered.
Based on these words, Professor Towner with the help of John Sammis, who developed
the lyrics, composed the music to this hymn Trust and Obey or When we walk with the
Lord. The words seem so simple but they express the feelings of many Christians. It is not
easy to trust and obey but that is what we are all called to do if we are to be happy in
Jesus. This song has remained popular with many Christian singers to this day and it is
my hope that you too will be blessed by this simple but powerful Christian song. A brief
Intro of
Will Your Anchor Hold?- Story Behind This Classic Hymn
Will Your Anchor Hold History The author of this hymn, "Will Your Anchor Hold", is
Priscilla Owens . She was born in Baltimore, USA in 1829 of Scottish and Welsh blood.
For over 50 years Priscilla Owens was actively involved in work for Christian youths and
most of her songs were therefore composed for children. Besides this hymn she is also
well known as the composer of another beloved Christian hymn, "We have heard a joyful
sound". She also composed several other hymns during her fruitful life on earth. "Will
Your Anchor Hold" was sung outside the door of the dying hymn-writer Mary Fawler
Maude (Thine For Ever! God of love). She sent her singers the message, "Tell them that it
does not fail - it holds." The hymn suggests that personal stability can only come from the
right foundations. It employs a seafaring analogy in making its point. Will Your Anchor

Master The Tempest Is Raging Hymn Story and Lyrics
4/4
Master The Tempest Is Raging History The words of this hymn, Master The Tempest Is
Raging, were written by Mary Ann Baker and they were set to music by Dr. H R Palmer in
1874. The song was published in Dr. Palmer's Songs of Love For The Bible School. The
inspiration for this song is the story of Jesus and the disciples crossing the Sea of Galilee
when they encountered a big storm and their boat was at risk of capsizing. As the Bible
reports Jesus was fast asleep while his disciples were fighting the storm and fearing for
their lives. They soon realized that the savior was with them in the boat and woke him up.
They complained to him saying, "Master, carest thou not that we perish." Horatio Palmer
Christ stood in the midst of the storm and rebuked the wind saying, "Peace, be still" and
the storm stopped. Master The Tempest Is Raging Lyrics Master, the tempest is raging!
The billows are tossing high! The sky is o’ershadowed
