1 Upon life's boundless ocean where mighty billows roll,
I've fixed my hope in Jesus, blest anchor of my soul.
When trials fierce assail me as storms are gath'ring o'er,
I rest upon his mercy and trust him more.

Chorus:
I've anchored in Jesus, the storms of life I'll brave,
I've anchored in Jesus, I fear no wind or wave,
I've anchored in Jesus, For he hath pow'r to save,
I've anchored in the rock of ages.

2 He keeps my soul from evil and give me blessed peace,
His voice hath stilled the waters and bid their tumult cease.
My pilot and deliv'rer to him I all confide,
For always when I need him, he's at my side. [Chorus]

3 He is my Friend and Saviour, in him my anchor's cast,
He drives away my sorrows and shields me from the blast.
By faith I'm looking upward beyond life's troubled sea,
There I behold a haven prepared for me. [Chorus]
