1 I have an Anchor that holds me safe
When ‘whelming billows roll;
That Anchor—Christ—my steadfast Hope,
Who will the waves control.

Refrain:
My Anchor—my Anchor is Jesus;
My bark shall be safely controlled
My Anchor—my Anchor is Jesus;
The Anchor that ever will hold.

2 May Jesus ever, on life’s great sea
Remain my Anchor sure;
Then ‘mid all dangers everywhere,
I shall be kept secure. [Refrain]

3 This blessed Anchor—my Hope—my All,
Will bring me, by and by,
To where ‘tis held “within the veil”
Beyond the shining sky. [Refrain]
