"In times like these..."

Post by JoAnn » Tue Sep 13, 2005 7:23 pm

At church Sunday someone wanted a request for a song whose chorus starts, "in times like these..." I think it went on "we need a savior, in times like these we need an anchor, in times like these ..." its an old song but i don't remember the title.

Hi JoAnn,

The hymn is called "The Solid Rock", lyrics and music by Ruth C. Jones.

1.
In times like these you need a Savior
In times like these you need an anchor
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

Refrain
This Rock is Jesus, Yes He's the One
This Rock is Jesus, the only One
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

2.
In times like these you need the Bible
In times like these O be not idle
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

3.
In times like these I have a Savior
In times like these I have an anchor
I'm very sure, I'm very sure
My anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

Do you have any historically information about the hymn "Solid Rock"? I would like to know why the song was written. What storm was this person going through? I am speaking at a Women's Conference in two weeks, and I would like to use this song to demonstrate how to anchor your soul.

Hi LaShelle,

You're in luck--I was able to find several accounts that describe how Ruth Jones (a.k.a. Mother Jones) came to write the hymn.

I have always known it by the title: "In Times Like These"
Mrs Jones wrote it in 1944, (or was first published in '44), in the dark days of WW II, I think.

I'm a 54 yr. old female who sang this song as a child. My Great Grandmother would request me to sing it each and every time we went to visit her. She died in 1963, and I have such fond memories of her. This song always takes me back to that time.

I lost every iota of my hearing in 1971, when I was ten years old.
This is among the songs I actually remember hearing!
