Sunday's Hymn: We Have an Anchor

Will your anchor hold in the storms of life,
When the clouds unfold their wings of strife?
When the strong tides lift and the cables strain,
Will your anchor drift, or firm remain?


We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love.

It is safely moored, ’twill the storm withstand,
For ’tis well secured by the Savior’s hand;
And the cables, passed from His heart to mine,
Can defy that blast, thro’ strength divine.

It will surely hold in the Straits of Fear—
When the breakers have told that the reef is near;
Though the tempest rave and the wild winds blow,
Not an angry wave shall our bark o’erflow.

It will firmly hold in the Floods of Death—-
When the waters cold chill our latest breath,
On the rising tide it can never fail,
While our hopes abide within the Veil.

When our eyes behold through the gath’ring night
The city of gold, our harbor bright,
We shall anchor fast by the heav’nly shore,
With the storms all past forevermore.

—Pris­cil­la J. Ow­ens

More Than a Message

I posted at Out of the Ordinary this morning:

[Jesus’s] resurrection is like a giant billboard proclaiming that he is God’s powerful reigning Son (Romans 1:3-4) who has the authority to judge everyone (Acts 17:30-31). Christ’s resurrection is a loud pronouncement that he is Lord of all.

But to those who believe in him, Jesus’s resurrection is more than a message about who he is. Because believers are united to Christ, they experience resurrection, too.

Read all of Experiencing the Resurrection.
