Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

My Soul's Been Anchored

Before I'd stay in hell one day

Tune: [Before I'd stay in hell one day]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

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]
