Lyrics

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 suff’ring, 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,
As we draw our final breath;
We will cross that great horizon,
Clouds behind and life secure,
And the calm will be the better
For the storms that we endure.

TAG
Christ, the shore of our salvation,
Ever faithful, ever true;
We will hold fast to the anchor;
It shall never be removed.

Jesus, Thank You

VERSE 1
The mystery of the cross 
I cannot comprehend
The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect Holy One, 
crushed Your Son
Who drank the bitter cup 
reserved for me

CHORUS
Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy, 
now seated at Your table
Jesus, thank You

VERSE 2
By Your perfect sacrifice 
I’ve been brought near
Your enemy You’ve made Your friend
Pouring out the riches of 
Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness 
know no end

CHORUS

BRIDGE (x2)
Lover of my soul
I want to live for You

CHORUS
