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.

We were taught this amazing song in primary school and is still comes from my soul when am in the bathroom thinking about the vicissitudes of life. I sang it this morning too.

I sang this hymn in my wedding. It has kept me going and my dad keeps reminding me. As I turn 45 today, the anchor still holds. Hallelujah.

It's been over 30 years since I last heard this song, but last week God brought it back into my heart during a small group meeting. I bought a copy from iTunes, and it brings me tears of joy over and over.

I woke up with this song in my heart. Jesus is the anchor in any situation. He gives us an unshakable hope that no matter the height, width or depth of any storm, we are able to rise above it. Glory be to God who always makes us to triumph through Christ Jesus.

A song during test and trials, our foundation in Christ will determine how well we can stand the storms of life. With Christ as our anchor no matter how tough or difficult the storm is we will always overcome. Do not give up during this testing period for your deliverance is just a second away.

A song that inspires me when the tides are low.

The original version of this hymn is much much better, why have the words been changed? One of my favourite hymns - please respect the writer and use the original words.
