posticon The Anchor Holds


I watch alot of the TBN Channel, and in between programs where there's spare [sign in to see URL]'re treated to singers singing their beautiful songs. This is such a song I heard that truly hits home to "all" sailors...

The Anchor Holds
Music & Lyrics by Ray Boltz

I have journeyed
Thru' the long dark night
Out in the open sea
By faith alone
Sight unknown
And yet His eyes were
Watching me

Chorus:
The anchor holds
Tho' the ship's been battered
The anchor holds
Tho' the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees
As I face life's raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm

I've had visions
I've had dreams
I've even held
Them in my hand
But I never knew
That they could slip right thru'
Like they were only grains of sand.

I have been young
But I am older now
And there has been such beauty
These eyes have seen
But it was in the night
Thru' the storm of my life
O, that's where God proved His love to me.


REPEAT CHORUS ONCE TAG
I have fallen on my knees
As I face life's raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm

...

I surely hope that you guys enjoy it. emoticon

Precious Lord, take my hand, Lead me on, let me stand! I am tired, I am weak, I am worn, Through the storm, to the light, Take my hand, precious Lord, Lead me home. ~ Tommy Dorsey

Why, thank you, [sign in to see URL]'m glad that you like it. Ray Boltz writes excellent songs.

Here are the titles if a couple other songs he wrote; "I Pledge Allegiance To The Lamb" and "Through It All".

The Gaither Gospel singers has the latter song on their Bill & Gloria, and Friends' REUNION: A Gospel Homecoming Celebration CD. It is Bill who voices the last verse of this song:

I thank God for the mountains,
And I thank Him for the valleys,
I thank Him for the storms
He brought me through;
For if I'd never had a problem
I wouldn't know that He could solve them,
I'd never know what faith in God could do.


and then he is backed up by his singers, singing the chorus:

Through it all, through it all
I've learned to trust in Jesus,
I've learned to trust in God;
Through it all, through it all,
I've learned to depend upon His Word.
