We'll anchor by and by;
The ship is on the ocean,
We'll anchor by and by.

We'll stand the storm, it won't be long,
We'll anchor by and by;
We'll stand the storm, it won't be long,
We'll anchor by and by.

We'll anchor by and by;
She's making for the landing,
We'll anchor by and by. [Chorus]

We'll anchor by and by;
We're crossing over Jordan,
We'll anchor by and by. [Chorus]

We'll anchor by and by;
King Jesus is our captain,
We'll anchor by and by. [Chorus]
