Representative Text

1 When the storms of life are over,
And we lay our burdens down;
When with Him we safely anchor,
We shall wear a starry crown.

Refrain:
When we anchor by and by,
With the Saviour we adore,
When we anchor by and by,
There to praise Him evermore.

2 Meet the loved ones gone before us,
We shall clasp their hands again,
As we join that heav’nly chorus;
There will be no parting then. [Refrain]

3 Over there shall be no darkness,
For the Saviour is the light;
And with Him to dwell forever,
In the glory world so bright. [Refrain]
