94. Anchor By and By

1 When I can read my title clear
To mansions in the skies,
I'll bid farewell to every fear,
And wipe my weeping eyes.

Chorus:
We will stand the storm,
We will anchor by and by, by and by,
We will stand the storm,
We will anchor by and by, by and by.

2 Should earth against my soul engage,
And fiery darts be hurled,
Then I can smile at Satan's rage,
And face a frowning world.
[Chorus]

3 Let cares like a wild deluge come,
Let storms of sorrow fall,--
So I but safely reach my home,
My God, my heaven, my all.
[Chorus]

4 There I shall bathe my weary soul
In seas of heavenly rest,
And not a wave of trouble roll
Across my peaceful breast.
[Chorus]
