Verse 1:
Gm            Dm7/G    Gm           B♭
   My hope is built      on nothing less
Gm             Dm        E♭
   Than Jesus' blood and righteousness.
Gm             Dm7/G    Gm             B♭
   I dare not trust       the sweetest frame,
Gm            Dm      E♭         D   D7
   But wholly live on Jesus' name.
Csus2                        Bm
   When the mountains are falling,
When the waters are rising,
G                     D
I shall be safe in You.

        Though the nations are quaking,
Every kingdom be shaken;

Still I will rest in You.    (In You.)

   I rest on Your unchanging grace.
Gm          Dm7/G    Gm           B♭
   In every high       and stormy gale,
Gm           Dm        E♭           D   D7
   My anchor holds within the veil.    [to Chorus]
 Gm  Dm7/G  Gm Bb Gm Dm/F  Eb/ D D7

On nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust
The sweetest frame
But wholly lean
On Jesus' Name

When the mountains are falling
When the waters are rising
I shall be safe in You
Though the nations are quaking
Every kingdom be shaken
Still I will rest in You

When darkness seems
To hide Your face
I rest on Your
Unchanging grace
In every high
And stormy gale
My anchor holds
Within the veil
