Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor

Verse 1:
Christ the sure and steady anchor
in the fury of the storm
When the winds of doubt blow through me
and my sails have all been torn
In the suffering, in the sorrow
when my sinking hopes are few
I will hold fast to the anchor
it shall never be removed
 
Verse 2: 
Christ the sure and steady anchor
while the tempest rages on
when temptation claims the battle and it seems the night has won
deeper still then goes the anchor
though I justly stand accused
I will hold fast to the anchor
it shall never be removed
 
Verse 3:
Christ the sure and steady anchor
through the floods of unbelief
Hopeless, somehow, o my soul now lift your eyes to calvary
This my ballast of assurance
See His love forever proved
I will hold fast to the anchor
it shall never be removed
 
Verse 4:
Christ the sure and steady anchor
as we face the wave of death
When these trials give way to glory
and we draw our final breath
We will cross that great horizon
