Bethel Music – Anchor Lyrics

Artist: Bethel Music

Album: You Make Me Brave

Verse 1:
In every season, in every change
You are near
In every sorrow,
You are my strength
You are near

A peace in the storm
Your voice I will follow
In weakness I rise
Remembering You hold my world

I’m holding on to hope
I’m holding on to grace
I’m fully letting go
I’m surrendered to Your ways

The anchor for my soul
Father You will never change

I love You, I love You

Verse 2:
My great Redeemer,
My constant Friend
You are near
My faithful Father,
You took me in
You are near

I will remember Your promise forever
My Strength, my Defender
I can count on You
You are my Savior, My Hope and my Shelter
Your love is forever
I can count on You

Sometimes I feel like a candle in a dark and windy world.

Struggling to keep my flame alive…barely having enough light to share or time to care.

A short flame, threatening to burn out, to disappear.  Surrounded by darkness – millions of candles that have never felt the warm glow on their own lives.

I desperately try to force the same few candles to accept the light, but they wave me away so vigorously that my own small fire threatens to burn out.

Tending to my precarious flame causes me to ignore the faint cry from so many other candles – silently screaming for someone to share the light with them.

Light of hope.  Of peace.  Of Love.  Just one encounter, one word, one ray of light.

Then it happens. I remember.  I am not the source.  I have nothing.  I am nothing.  I need, so very much need to plug into the real Light.  To attach myself to the Lamp that burns so bright and true.  To dip my wick on the Oil of Life.

Then, the miraculous happens.  My light shines strong and God is glorified.  I am empowered with love and wisdom.

I hear that voice crying and the True Light goes with me to bring a dark soul into glorious light.

Not me.  Never me.  The Light of the world is JESUS.
