My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less
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.
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 ev'ry 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]

Holy Bible, Book Divine
1) Holy Bible, Book divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine:
Mine to tell me whence I came;
Mine to teach me whence I am.
2) Mine to chide me when I rove,
Mine to show a Savior's love;
Mine thou art to guide and guard;
Mine to punish or reward.
3) Mine to comfort in distress,
Suffering in this wilderness;
Mine to show by living faith,
We can triumph over death.
4) Mine to tell of joys to come,
And the rebel sinner's doom:
O thou Holy Book divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine.
God’s Word Gives Hope Romans 15:4
I. The Old Testament Points to Jesus
Peter Stoner in Science Speaks says that by using the modern science of probability in reference to only eight prophecies being fulfilled in one person, “we find that the chance that any man might have lived down to the present time and fulfilled all eight prophecies is 1 in 1017.” To comprehend this staggering probability, Stoner uses an imaginary exercise: 1017silver dollars would cover Texas two feet deep. Now pretend we marked one of these silver dollars, then threw it randomly into the pile. Then blindfold a man and ask him to pick up one silver dollar. If he chose the marked one, he would have matched the odds of Jesus fulfilling eight prophecies—1 in 1017. (Lenya Heitzig and Penny Pierce Rose, Live Intimately: Lessons from the Upper Room).
Stoner considers forty-eight prophecies and says, “we find the chance that any one man fulfilled all 48 prophecies to be 1 in 10157. The estimated number of electrons in the universe is around 1079. It should be quite evident that Jesus did not fulfill the prophecies by accident.”
II. The Old Testament Teaches Godly Living
learning = teaching, providing instruction (James Swanson, Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains: Greek (New Testament)
Bagster's Bible gives 889 quotations and allusions. George F. Pentecost gives the number at 885, a few of the allusions given by Bagster's Bible being disputed. Every book of the Old Testament is quoted except Obadiah, Nahum, Zephaniah, and Esther. There is only one quotation from the Song of Solomon.
III. The Old Testament Teaches Perseverance
patience = “steadfastness, fortitude, a triumphant adequacy which copes with life and turns trials into glorifying God.” (Mattoon, Treasures from Romans, 464.)
IV. The Old Testament Gives Encouragement
comfort = The act of exhortation, encouragement, comfort. All of Scripture is actually a paráklēsis, an exhortation, admonition or encouragement for the purpose of strengthening and establishing the believer in the faith. (Spiros Zodhiates, The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament)
V. The Old Testament Gives Hope
hope = to look forward with confidence to that which is good and beneficial—to hope, to hope for (Louw and Nida, Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, 295)
