Representative Text

1 I’ll never let go the anchor,
Where Jesus hath brought my soul,
But cling to it still with firmness,
Though billow around me roll.

I’ll never let go the anchor,
Though heart and strength may fail;
I’ll never let go, I’ll never let go,
Till gathered within the vale.

2 My anchor that stood for ages,
No changes nor time can more;
‘Twill surely abide forever;
‘Tis fixed on a Saviour’s love. [Refrain]

3 Oh, glory to God! I’m happy;
My trust in his word is strong;
I know that his hand upholds me,
And crowneth my life with song. [Refrain]

4 Oh, glory to God! I’m happy;
I’ll praise him on yonder shore;
For now I can brave the tempest,
And smile when the surges roar. [Refrain]
