Sunday Sermon and Song

Remember that it doesn't matter how well you are prepared physically and materially if you aren't prepared spiritually and mentally.  Everyone needs a good sermon everyday - but especially on Sunday to help you through the coming week.  In addition to the sermon you need a hymn that enforces Bible truth and uplifts your spirit.

Take the time to read or listen to the sermon and song.

You Can Trust the Bible (John MacArthur)

On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand
also called
My Hope is Built  is just the music at nethymnal  is a youtube version - which isn't very good - but it gives you an idea of how the song goes if you aren't familiar with it. 
The song is supposed to be sung like a victory song - not at a slow sad tempo.  The Net-hymnal timing is correct.

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
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.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
