We Have an Anchor
Words by Priscilla J. Owens
Music by William J. Kirkpatrick

Hebrews 6:19
"Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure
and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;"

divider

          Will your anchor hold in the storms of life,
          When the clouds unfold their wings of strife?
          When the strong tides lift and the cables strain,
          Will your anchor drift, or firm remain?

            Chorus
            We have an anchor that keeps the soul
            Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
            Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
            Grounded firm and deep in the Savior's love.

          It is safely moored, 'twill the storm withstand,
          For 'tis well secured by the Savior’s hand;
          And the cables, passed from His heart to mine,
          Can defy that blast, thro' strength divine.

            Chorus
            We have an anchor that keeps the soul
            Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
            Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
            Grounded firm and deep in the Savior's love.

          When our eyes behold through the gath’ring night
          The city of gold, our harbor bright,
          We shall anchor fast by the heav'nly shore,
          With the storms all past forevermore.

            Chorus
            We have an anchor that keeps the soul
            Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
            Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
            Grounded firm and deep in the Savior's love.
