Lyrics to The Anchor Holds

Lyrics to “The Anchor Holds” The Anchor Holds

I have journeyed through the long dark night
Out on the open sea, by faith alone,
Sight unknown;
and yet His eyes were watching me.

The anchor holds,
Though the ship is battered.
The anchor holds,
Though the sails are torn.
I have fallen on my knees as I face the raging seas;
The anchor holds in spite of the storm.

I've had visions, I've had dreams,
I've even held them in my hand;
But I never knew they would slip right through,
Like they were only grains of sand.

I have been young but I'm older now,
And there has been beauty these eyes have seen;
But it was in the night, through the storms of my life;
Oh, that's where God proved His love for me,
The anchor holds.
