Help us in times of temptation; make us strong where we are weak; give us courage in difficulty; faithfulness in duty; loyalty in friendship; and finally, by your Mercy; bring us into Your everlasting Kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We Have An Anchor

Priscilla J. Owens.  1829 - 1907     
William J. Kirkpatrick  1838 - 1921

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?  

It is safely moored,’twill the storm withstand,
For ‘tis well secured by the Saviour’s hand;
Though the tempest rage and the wild winds blow,
Not an angry wave shall our bark o’er flow.

Chorus
We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll.  
Fastened to the Rock which can not move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love.


When our eyes behold through the gathering night,
The city of gold, our habour bright,
We shall anchor fast by the heavenly shore,
With the storms all past for ever more.
