255. Will Your Anchor Hold

1 Will your anchor hold in the storms of life,
when the clouds unfold their wings of strife;
when the strong tides lift and the cables strain,
will your anchor drift, or firm remain?

We have an anchor that keeps the soul
steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
fasten'd to the Rock which cannot move,
grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love!

2 Will your anchor hold in the straits of fear,
when the breakers roar and the reef is near;
while the surges rave, and the wild winds blow,
shall the angry waves then your bark o'erflow? [Refrain]

3 Will your anchor hold in the floods of death,
when the waters cold chill your latest breath?
On the rising tide you can never fail
while your anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]

4 Will your eyes behold through the morning light
the city of gold and the harbor bright?
Will you anchor safe by the heav'nly shore,
when life's storms are past for evermore? [Refrain]
