The Christian hymn was written by Edward Mote in 1834. As the story goes, he wrote the song one day on his way to work. The faith-filled words coming out of the heart, inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Mr. Mote as a child grew up in the streets of London very much neglected by his parents who are busy managing a pub.

He did not even know God existed till he heard of Him and His Words at the age of 18 and was baptized. He had a successful career as a cabinet maker and became a pastor at 55, and went on to serve for 21 years, never missing a Sunday in the pulpit, till his death at 77 years old.

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.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalms 18:2 (NKJV)

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. Matthew 7:24‭-‬25 (NKJV)
