Representative Text

1 When clouds and storms the way make dark,
And dangers seem around life’s bark,
Cast out hope’s anchor, with a prayer,
And angels will watch o’er you there.

Cast out the anchor of hope,
Fear not the billows that roll,
Angels above, on wings of love,
Lovingly watch o’er each soul,
Lovingly watch o’er each soul.

2 Drift not upon lie’s rocks and reefs,
Drift not amongst its cares and griefs,
Cast out hope’s anchor, weary one,
And endless peace to you will come. [Refrain]

3 There is a harbor up above,
Where through the Father’s wondrous love,
Our longed for joys will come at last,
By hope’s strong anchor e’er made fast. [Refrain]
