1 I’m resting securely in Jesus now!
I sail the wide seas no more;
The tempests may sweep o’er the wild stormy deep—
I am safe where the storms come no more.

I’ve anchored my soul in the haven of rest,
I sail the wild seas no more, no more;
The tempests may sweep o’er the wild, stormy deep,
But in Jesus I’m safe evermore, evermore,
But in Jesus I’m safe evermore.

2 O long on the ocean my bark was tossed,
Where tempests and storms ne’er cease;
My heart was in fear, and no refuge was near,
Till in Jesus my soul found its peace. [Refrain]

3 How sweet in the haven of rest to abide!
Secure from all doubt and fear,—
The billows may roll, but there’s rest for the soul
When the voice of my Saviour I hear. [Refrain]
