Christ, the Sure and Steady Anchor- New Song

Christ Anchor 
This world is not our home, and yet we are called to live here until God calls us to our true home. We are truly living in exile, as Pastor Morgan will remind us this coming weekend. As strangers and aliens in this world, what is our foundation? What is our anchor in the midst of a tumultuous culture that seems to shift with every new wave of cultural thought? What can we hold onto when we are confronted with doubt, death, or depression? Where is our fortress when temptations assail us and even prevail over our weak wills?

The answer, of course, is Jesus Christ. This month we'll be reminded of that in our new song titled "Christ, the Sure and Steady Anchor". Here are the encouraging words from Matt Boswell and Matt Papa:

Christ, the Sure and Steady Anchor

Christ, the sure and steady anchor, in the fury of the storm;
When the winds of doubt blow through me, and my sails have all been torn.
In the suff'ring, in the sorrow, when my sinking hopes are few;
I will hold fast to the anchor. It shall never be removed.

Christ, the sure and steady anchor, while the tempest rages on;
When temptation claims the battle, and it seems the night has won,
Deeper still then goes the anchor, though I justly stand accused;
I will hold fast to the anchor. It shall never be removed.

Christ, the sure and steady anchor, through the floods of unbelief;
Hopeless somehow, O my soul, now lift your eyes to Calvary.
This my ballest of assurance, see His love forever proved.
I will hold fast to the anchor. It shall never be removed.

Christ, the sure and steady anchor, as we face the wave of death;
When these trials give way to glory as we draw our final breath.
We will cross that great horizon, clouds behind and life secure;
And the calm will be the better for the storms that we endure.

Christ, the shore of our salvation, ever faithful, ever true.
We will hold fast to the anchor. It shall never be removed.
