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 am confident that our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ will see you and me through the storms we are facing. I woke up this morning with mercy on my mind. This song "We Have An Anchor" was flooding my soul as I began to Offer up a Sacrifice of PRAISE unto Him in song! Thank You Jesus!

The Anchor is Faith unwavering in the character of the Godhead. That He is able to preserve us through this pilgrim land till we reach the golden shore. Faithful is He.
