“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into that within the veil.
Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus,
made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
My soul, in sad exile, was out on life’s sea,
So burdened with sin and distressed,
Till I heard a sweet voice saying,
“Make me your choice,”
And I entered the haven of rest.
I’ve anchored my soul in the haven of rest,
I’ll sail the wide seas no more;
The tempest may sweep o’er the wild, stormy deep –
In Jesus I’m safe evermore.
I yielded myself to His tender embrace,
And, faith taking hold of the Word,
My fetters fell off, and I anchored my soul –
The haven of rest is my Lord.
The song of my soul, since the Lord made me whole,
Has been the old story so blest
Of Jesus, who’ll save whosoever will have
A home in the haven of rest.
This hymn brings me comfort when I am going through the storms of life. What hymn brings you comfort when you are distressed by the storms of life?
