Refrain:
In the Lord, in the Lord,
My soul's been anchored in the Lord;
In the Lord, in the Lord'
My soul's been anchored in the Lord.

1 Before I'd stay in hell one day,
My soul's been anchored in the Lord;
I'd sing and pray myself away,
My soul's been anchored in the Lord, O Lord!
My soul's been anchored in the Lord, O Lord!
My soul's been anchored in the Lord. [Refrain]

2 I'm born of God, I know I am,
My soul's been anchored in the Lord,
I'm purchased by the dying Lamb,
My soul's been anchored in the Lord, O Lord!
My soul's been anchored in the Lord, O Lord!
My soul's been anchored in the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Going to shout and pray and never stop,
My soul's been anchored in the Lord;
Until I reach the mountain top,
My soul's been anchored in the Lord, O Lord!
My soul's been anchored in the Lord, O Lord!
My soul's been anchored in the Lord. [Refrain]
