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.

Still a fresh hymn of hope when hopelessness seems to take centre stage. Amen.

I grew up singing this song in basic school and trust me its speaks volumes.Anytime I sing it in church it gives me fond memories of my childhood days and also reminds me of how good the Lord has been to me......Still grounded in the faith. Praise God!

Like Torrey, I was still in bed this morning, when I started singing this song starting with the chorus, I grew singing it in church as well, but for some of the words in the verses. But I remember the 1st line in the 1st verse, asking the question: "will your anchor holds in the storms of life". Because often times we get so discouraged, when we're going through a rough patch in our Christian walk, and sometimes it get so intense when those we fellowship with in church starts acting funny and cold towards us. But l'm encourage this morning of The anchor that keeps my soul. The LORD JESUS CHRIST, Is my anchor. Praise The LORD.

I woke up this morning and started singing this hymn from memory. I haven't sang it in years so I had to look up the verses , which I could not recall. I grew up singing this in church, but my wife who also grew up in church did not know the song. What an encouraging hymn. Sometimes my soul drifts for a season. When I focus on Jesus, I have an anchor! Praise God for His steadfast love!

Indeed Jesus Christ the son of the living God is the only anchor we can hold on to in this in this dark world of sins.
