1 I’m weary, I’m fainting, my day’s work is done;
I’m watching and waiting for life’s setting sun;
The shadows are stretching afar o’er the lea;
Then oh! let me anchor beyond the dark sea.

Refrain:
The shadows are stretching afar o’er the lea,
Then oh! let me anchor beyond the dark sea.

2 The cold surging billows that break at my feet,
Have lost all their terror, their music is sweet;
My Saviour is stilling the tempest for me;
Then oh! let me anchor beyond the dark sea. [Refrain]

3 Come, loving Redeemer, and take to Thy breast
The heart that is panting and sighing for rest;
My Saviour, I’m waiting, I’m waiting for Thee;
Then oh! let me anchor beyond the dark sea. [Refrain]

4 I’ll lay my life’s burden, O Lord, at Thy feet,
For lov’d ones are watching my spirit to greet;
The portals of glory are open for me;
Then oh! let me anchor beyond the dark sea. [Refrain]
