My Anchor Holds

P1169045
I have journeyed
Through the long dark night
Out on the open sea
By faith alone
Sight unknown
And yet His eyes were watching me

The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm

I've had visions
I've had dreams
I've even held them in my hand
But I never knew
They would slip right through
Like they were only grains of sand

I have been young
But I am older now
And there has been beauty
These eyes have seen
But it was in the night
Through the storms of my life
Where God proved his love to me

The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm

Now we have this hope
as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul -
it cannot slip and it cannot
break down
under whoever steps out upon it...
Hebrews 6:19

Song: ‘My Anchor Holds’

  7. A dear friend of ours sang this song in church on a Sunday morning in 1996. Two days later he passed away from a heart attack.
    He was 40.

    Still miss him.
