Get yourself an anchor
Before you leave the shore;
When the sea becomes forbidding,
That's what the anchor's for.
When your ship is tossed about
Upon life's stormy waves,
Your anchor will secure you
Though the winds about you rage.
So before you start your journey
And venture from the shore,
Get yourself a mighty anchor
In Jesus Christ, the Lord.

This hope we have as an anchor of the
soul, both sure and steadfast, and which
enters the presence behind the veil.
