Lyrics

illustration

I’m rest­ing so sweet­ly in Je­sus now!
I sail the wide seas no more;
The tem­pests may sweep
O’er the wild, stor­my deep—
I am safe where the storms come no more.

Refrain

I have an­chored my soul in the ha­ven of rest,
I sail the wild seas no more, no more;
The tem­pests may sweep
O’er the wild, stor­my deep,
But in Je­sus I’m safe ev­er­more, ev­er­more,
But in Je­sus I’m safe ev­er­more.

O long on the ocean my bark was tossed,
Where tem­pests and storms ne’er cease;
My heart was in fear,
And no re­fuge was near,
Till in Je­sus my soul found her peace.

Refrain

How sweet in a ha­ven of rest to hide!
No bil­lows of doubt or fear—
The oceans may roll,
But there’s rest for the soul,
When the voice of my Sav­ior is near.
