the anchor holds

Post by songinmyheart » Sat Mar 18, 2017 2:03 pm

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.

Chorus
The anchor holds
Though the ships been 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

Chorus

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.

Chorus

I have fallen on my knees as I face the raging seas.
The anchor holds in spite of the storm.

Just realized The Anchor Holds lyrics were first posted in 2008 by our member, DownToTheAlter
For continuity sake here is that link
http://www.namethathymn.com/hymn-lyrics-detective-forum/index.php?a=vtopic&t=5514
and then again in 2011 our member, Holyone posted the chords
http://www.namethathymn.com/hymn-lyrics-detective-forum/index.php?a=vtopic&t=10214
And again in 2013 some more information was added
