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.

Refrain:
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]
