Anchored on a Rock


Anchored on a rock 
and lifted up on high 
A stormy sea against you 
rages in the sky 
Standing always upright 
Solid and serene 
Far from shore your faithfulness 
A bright light ever beams 
I placed you there for safety 
But not your own you see 
I built you high upon a rock 
For those souls lost at sea 
So when come fiery trials 
Let the fire light your lamp 
And when come winds of doctrine 
Hold fast and hold your stance 
A time will come to travel 
A time will come for man 
To see my beacon clearly 
To find the way to land
