Will your anchor hold in the storms of life

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?
  We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Stedfast 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 the blast, through strength divine.
It will firmly hold in the straits of fear,
When the breakers have told the reef is near;
Though the tempest rave and the wild winds blow,
Not an angry wave shall our bark o’erflow.
It will surely hold in the floods of death,
When the waters cold chill our latest breath;
On the rising tide it can never fail,
While our hopes abide within the veil.

I'm so glad I found this song online, was having my bath this night and just wondering about all the different issues we have in this dark world and just how to cope and the Holy Spirit reminded me of this song. I'm is so filled with joy that the Lord is always with us at every point of every storm in our life. Reminds me of the Boy's Brigade days. Thank You Lord.

This one song that has so much helped my move through the storms and tides and strifes of this life. in the year 1998, I was declared a failure in my national diploma course, but sang and prayed this song for almost the whole of a year then God Almighty Himself turned the tides calmed the entire storm till I graduated with an award in the year 2000. it will forever be my song be there strifes and storms or not! I really know I have an ancor in this unyielding and ever living Father.

I really love this song, my faith in the Lord gets strengthened any time I listen to the song.


God, I am trusting You to hold me through this storm and see me through until I reach You and Your new world prepared for me! I love You.



A man without understanding of life is like a boat without an anchor.
