Anchor of Hope

Since yesterday, this song has been in my heart. 
It holds such beautiful words of hope I can scarcely sing it without my voice catching in my throat for very relief that there is an end coming to all our storms in this life! 

We Have An Anchor
"Will your anchor hold in the storms of life
When the clouds unfold their winds of strife
When the strong tides lift and the cables strain
Will your anchor drift or firm remain?

"Will your anchor hold in the straits of fear
When the breakers roar and the reef is near
When the surges rave and the wild winds blow
Shall the angry waves then your bark o'erflow?

"Will your eyes behold through the gathering night
The city of gold and the harbor bright
Will you anchor safe by the heavenly shore

When life's storms are past for evermore?

"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."
by: Priscilla Jane Owens


"Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. 

"This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls."  ~Hebrews 6:18,19

Whatever the storms or tribulations 
we may face in the coming year, 
God has given us an anchor of hope in the 
precious death and resurrection of His Son Jesus. 

That is a great cause for celebrating the wonderful gift
of Jesus to all who will believe and obey His Word!
