I love the man of Galilee,

the atoner of eternal life

Decked with heavenly grace 

Nailed to the cross at Golgotha 

Resurrected into eternal glory 

                     For reconciliation 




and for sanctification of the majestic lordship

of the sons of God.



An anchor?

Yes, an anchor.

Sure and steadfast 

Yes, an anchor.

An anchor that keeps the soul

Yes, an anchor.

Save and secure

Yes, an anchor.

Sound and safe

Yes, an anchor.

An anchor that keeps hope 

Yes, an anchor.

An anchor that protects from the storm of life

Yes, an anchor.

An anchor that sustains the believer

Yes, an anchor.

Jesus Christ is our anchor,

The eternal rock of ages

Yes, an anchor.
