Representative Text

1 When the waves are rolling fast,
And I face the threatening blast,
And a dark, forbidding cloud my bark enfolds;
Tho’ the billows round me roll,
There’s a calm within my soul;
Hallelujah! praise the Lord, my anchor holds.

Refrain:
I can face the tempest’s shock,
For I’m anchored to the Rock,
And His mighty arm my feeble strength upholds;
Tho’ the billows round me roll,
There’s a calm within my soul;
Hallelujah! praise the Lord, my anchor holds.

2 Satan tries by every art,
And with many a fiery dart,
To affright me from the Christ my faith beholds;
But I trust Him more and more,
And I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Hallelujah! praise the Lord, my anchor holds. [Refrain]

3 I am waiting for a day
When the storms have passed away,
And the haven of sweet rest my eye beholds;
When my voyage is complete,
And I bow at Jesus’ feet;
Praise the Lord forevermore, my anchor holds. [Refrain]
