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.

It was during my verspas presentation when I had this urge to sing the song and luckily I had WiFi so just searched for the lyrics and it was quite refreshing to sing the song.

After service at home today, as I was about to sit and eat my lunch, the hymn started humming in my spirit the first verse and the chorus. God His great, He speaks to His children per time. Indeed He is the anchor that keeps my soul.

Read Hebrews 6:19 and this hymn came to mind. What comfort and assurance in such a time of uncertainty in our world!
