Lyrics

O so long was my bark
Tossed about on life’s sea,
But I’ve anchored in Jesus at last;
And I heard a sweet voice
Gently calling to me,
And I’ve anchored in Jesus at last.

Refrain

At last! at last!
All my doubtings are over,
My struggling is past,
And the load of my sin
At His feet I have cast,
I have anchored in Jesus at last.

Safely moored to the Rock
Which no tempest can shake,
I have anchored in Jesus at last;
Tho’ the billows in fury
Around me may break,
I have anchored in Jesus at last.

Refrain

In the harbor of faith
There is safety and rest,
I have anchored in Jesus at last;
And a deep settled peace
Now is filling my breast;
I have anchored in Jesus at last.

Refrain

Deeper groweth my peace
As I’m nearing the shore,
I have anchored in Jesus at last;
And by simply believing
I’m safe evermore,
I have anchored in Jesus at last.
