Christ the sure and steady anchor

CHRIST, THE SURE AND STEADY ANCHOR
in the fury of the storm,
when the winds of doubt blow through me
and my sails have all been torn;
in the suffering, in the sorrow,
when my sinking hopes are few,
I will hold fast to the anchor;
it shall never be removed.

2. Christ, the sure and steady anchor
while the tempest rages on,
when temptation claims the battle
and it seems the night has won;
deeper still then goes the anchor,
though I justly stand accused;
I will hold fast to the anchor;
it shall never be removed.

3. Christ, the sure and steady anchor
through the floods of unbelief;
hopeless somehow, O my soul, now
lift your eyes to Calvary.
This, my ballast of assurance;
see his love forever proved;
I will hold fast to the anchor;
it shall never be removed.

4. Christ, the sure and steady anchor
as we face the wave of death,
when these trials give way to glory,
as we draw our final breath;
we will cross that great horizon,
clouds behind and life secure,
and the calm will be the better
for the storms that we endure.

Christ, the shore of our salvation,
ever faithful, ever true;
we will hold fast to the anchor;
it shall never be removed.
