Representative Text

1 O so long was my bark toss’d about on life’s sea,
But I’ve anchor’d in Jesus at last;
And I heard a sweet voice gently calling to me,
And I’ve anchor’d in Jesus at last.

Refrain:
At last! at last!
All my doubtings are over, my struggling is past,
And the load of my sin at his feet I have cast,
I have anchor’d in Jesus at last.

2 Safely moor’d to the Rock which no tempest can shake,
I have anchor’d in Jesus at last;
Tho’ the billows in fury around me may break,
I have anchor’d in Jesus at last. [Refrain]

3 In the harbor of faith there is safety and rest,
I have anchor’d in Jesus at last;
And a deep settled peace now is filling my breast,
I have anchor’d in Jesus at last. [Refrain]

4 Deeper groweth my peace as I’m nearing the shore,
I have anchor’d in Jesus at last;
And by simply believing I’m safe evermore,
I have anchor’d in Jesus at last. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
