Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

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]
