Luke 10:38-42
Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at [a]Jesus’ feet and heard His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”

41 And [b]Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

Hymn: TLH 370: My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less

Hymnary.org Organ Audio

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. 

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. 
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; 
All other ground is sinking sand. 

3. His oath, His covenant, and blood 
Support me in the whelming flood; 
When every earthly prop gives way, 
He then is all my Hope and Stay. 
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; 
All other ground is sinking sand. 

4. When He shall come with trumpet sound, 
Oh, may I then in Him be found, 
Clothed in His righteousness alone, 
Faultless to stand before the throne! 
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; 
All other ground is sinking sand.
