Lyrics

O so long was my bark
Tossed about on life’s sea,
But I’ve an­chored in Je­sus at last;
And I heard a sweet voice
Gently call­ing to me,
And I’ve an­chored in Je­sus at last.

Refrain

At last! at last!
All my doubt­ings are ov­er,
My strug­gling is past,
And the load of my sin
At His feet I have cast,
I have an­chored in Je­sus at last.

Safely moored to the Rock
Which no tem­pest can shake,
I have an­chored in Je­sus at last;
Tho’ the bil­lows in fu­ry
Around me may break,
I have an­chored in Je­sus at last.

Refrain

In the har­bor of faith
There is safe­ty and rest,
I have an­chored in Je­sus at last;
And a deep set­tled peace
Now is fill­ing my breast;
I have an­chored in Je­sus at last.

Refrain

Deeper grow­eth my peace
As I’m near­ing the shore,
I have an­chored in Je­sus at last;
And by simp­ly be­liev­ing
I’m safe ev­er­more,
I have an­chored in Je­sus at last.
