We Have An Anchor ~ hymn

Hebrews 6:19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. 

We Have An Anchor 2

What do you think of when you think of an anchor? Do you think of that little piece of metal that small fishing boats use? Or do you think of one that can hold a naval carrier?

I intentionally think of one like those on a naval carrier. They are huge! They are so big and so heavy. 60,000 pounds heavy, according to the Navy website and an article I read.

God, through Jesus, is our anchor, isn’t he? Is he that big in your heart and mind? Do you recognize the power he has over everything? Nothing is going to move that anchor.

Nothing – not the storms of life. Not strife. Not strong tides. The billows will not move an anchor as big and strong and firm as God. Steadfast and sure. This is my God. Through it all.

Is he your God? Will you allow Him to be your anchor?

At Home.

We Have An Anchor

lyrics: Priscilla J. Owens (1882)
music: William J. Kirkpatrick (1882)

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? Refrain

We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast 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. Refrain
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. Refrain
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. Refrain

    You bring me back to the days when I attended a Baptist Church and this was a very familiar song for us to sing, of course today with croaky voice you don’t want to hear me sing

      How your voice is doesn’t matter. 🙂 It is the sentiment behind it and I know that sometimes silence truly speaks volumes to God. Feel better!
