“An anchor of the soul.”  Heb. 6. 18, 19; Tit. 1. 2

Gospel Mag., 1799             L.M.

1
We travel through a barren land,
With dangers thick on every hand;
But Jesus guides us through the vale;
The Christian’s hope can never fail.

2
Huge sorrows meet us as we go,
And devils aim our overthrow;
But vile infernals can’t prevail;
The Christian’s hope shall never fail.

3
Sometimes we’re tempted to despair,
But Jesus makes us then his care;
Though numerous foes our souls assail,
The Christian’s hope shall never fail.

4
We trust upon the sacred word –
The oath and promise of our Lord;
And safely through each tempest sail;
The Christian’s hope shall never fail.
