Representative Text

1 My soul is anchored safely, Lord,
I trust in Thy unfailing word;
No shadow falls across the page
That lights the world from age to age.

My soul is anchored safe and sure
In God’s own word which shall endure,
I cannot drift from Him away,
My soul is anchored night and day.

2 My soul is anchored! ever sure
Is Christ, the Rock which shall endure;
My shelter from the noontide heat,
In darkness my secure retreat. [Refrain]

3 My soul is anchored safely, Lord;
My will with Thine in sweet accord;
No morn shall break, no sun shall set,
But marks the vict’ry nearer yet. [Refrain]

4 My soul is anchored! Praise the Lord;
I fear no storm—no rising flood;
When all that is of earth shall fail,
His love and grace will still prevail. [Refrain]
