Will Your Anchor Hold?

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 you anchor drift or firm remain?


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 Saviour's love!

Will your anchor hold in the straits of fear
When the breakers roar and the reef is near?
While the surges rave, and the wild winds blow
Shall the angry waves then your bark o'erflow

Will your anchor hold in the floods of death
When the waters cold chill your latest breath?
On the rising tide you can never fail
While your anchor holds within the vail

Will your eyes behold thro' the morning light
The city of gold, and the harbour bright?
Will your anchor safe by the heavenly shore
When life's storms are passed for evermore
