Scripture Verse

An anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19


Lewis E. Jones

Words & Mu­sic: Lew­is E. Jones, 1901 (🔊 pdf nwc).


Upon life’s boundless ocean
Where mighty billows roll,
I’ve fixed my hope in Jesus,
Blest anchor of my soul;
When trials fierce assail me
As storms are gathering o’er,
I rest upon His mercy
And trust Him more.


I’ve anchored in Jesus,
The storms of life I’ll brave,
I’ve anchored in Jesus,
I fear no wind or wave.
I’ve anchored in Jesus,
For He hath power to save,
I’ve anchored to the Rock of Ages.

He keeps my soul from evil
And gives me blessèd peace,
His voice hath stilled the waters
And bid their tumult cease;
My pilot and Deliverer,
To Him I all confide,
For always when I need Him,
He’s at my side.


He is my friend and Savior,
In Him my anchor’s cast,
He drives away my sorrows
And shields me from the blast;
By faith I’m looking upward
Beyond life’s troubled sea,
There I behold a haven
Prepared for me.
