Chorus 1

I've anchored my soul
In the haven of Rest
I'll sail the wide seas no more
The tempest may sweep
O'er the wild stormy deep
In Jesus I'm safe evermore

Verse 1

My soul in sad exile
Was out on life's sea
So burdened with sin
And distressed
Till I heard
A sweet voice saying
Make Me your choice
And I entered
The haven of Rest

Verse 2

I yielded myself
To His tender embrace
And faith taking hold
Of the Word
My fetters fell off
And I anchored my soul
The haven of Rest
Is the Lord

Verse 3

The song of my soul
Since the Lord made me whole
Has been the old story so blest
Of Jesus who'll save
Whosoever will have
A home in the haven of Rest

Verse 4

O come to the Savior
He patiently waits
To save by His power divine
Come anchor your soul
In the haven of Rest
And say My Beloved is mine

NEW! This PowerPoint File has been recently updated to our new format!

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
