“Anchored”

VERSE 1:
My soul is anchored to heaven’s holy veil,
for Christ, the great High Priest, died in my stead.
Hold fast! God’s promise will never fail:
“We are His, for Christ has risen from the dead!”

CHORUS:
Your steadfast love will lead us through the tempest;
grace and strength are ours.
Your faithfulness will see us through the storm
and give us hope to carry on.

VERSE 2:
No man or angel can keep me from Him;
my hope in heaven is steadfast and firm.
Though trials and sufferings come, death cannot win,
so we live in light of our great King’s return.

VERSE 3:
In faith my ransomed soul will ne’er depart from Christ,
my Savior who freed me from sin. Rejoice!
This confidence is sealed in our hearts
by the Spirit who empowers us from within!

VERSE 4:
Await with patience now,
all those who long to join their Savior in heaven’s endless days.
A glorious time will come when all join the song in one loud voice,
“May Jesus Christ be praised!”

For men swear by one greater than themselves, and with them an oath given as
confirmation is an end of every dispute. In the same way God, desiring even more to
show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed
with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to
lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the
hope set before us.
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one
which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having
become a high priest forever acco
rding to the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 6:16-20
