Jesus, Anchor of The Soul

Jesus, Anchor of The Soul*

Verse 1:
Jesus, anchor of the soul
constant in the strife
fierce storms roll against the Church
But you uphold her life

Verse 2:
Christ, unchangeable and true
Your promises are sure
O Church, hold fast to your refuge
For all the hope is yours

Chorus:
You will never let us go
By your blood, we’ve been made whole
Come, all weary saints, Behold!
Jesus, anchor of the soul

Verse 3:
The great High Priest, our sacrifice
Once for all he died
The throne of majesty in heav’n
He’s at the Father’s side

Verse 4:
When Satan, sin, and death attempt
to rend our souls from God
We have an everlasting love
that’s Sealed with Jesus’ blood

*I wrote this hymn after reflection on Hebrews 6-8. Key verses include 6:17-19, 7:27, and 8:1-2. The final verse is adapted from an Isaac Watts hymn on Hebrews 6:17-19 (Hymn 139 in Volume 1)
