Will your anchor hold in the storms of life

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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 have passing through depressing valley of thoughts for about two days. Then in the morning of the second day the Lord graciously flooded my mind the chorus of this wonderful song of confidence of presence of the Lord in whatever we are going through. We can anchor on Jesus the Rock of our salvation. He says "Be still, and know that I am God".

I was reading Mark 4 and at the end if this chapter it tells about the storm and Jesus was sleeping but the disciples were scared and woke him asking if Jesus cared that they perish? This reminds me of what we are facing in this current time. But this song came to me and reminds me that he is our Anchor steadfast and sure while the billows roar. It gives me strength Jesus truly is the Anchor in times of storms we face. ❤

My Anchor holds even though my husband Steve is in Heaven as of Dec. 21st 2019, I know his Spirit is with me and I will be with him again.

I love all the old hymns and would love to sing them again.
