Song background:

This song is based off of my favorite scripture - Ether 12:4 - "Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God."

"Your testimony of Jesus Christ is the most important anchor that you can have to help hold you, steadfast and immovable, to principles of righteousness, regardless of the challenges and temptations that may come in the future." (Elder M. Russell Ballard, "Steadfast in Christ," Ensign, December 1993, 52.) 

**Note - for ease and convenience the sheet music has a simpler violin part.  If you want the full violin part (the same part as in the recording), download the "only violin part" PDF file as well.

Lyrics: In a world of drifting values,
In storms of uncertainty,
With the waves crashing all around,
Who can set the one true course for me?
I cannot rely on my own strength.
Nor trust in the arm of flesh.
I must place my faith in Jesus Christ,
To be immovable in righteousness.

CHORUS
My faith is an anchor,
Always sure and steadfast.
Guiding me in all I do,
As it has in times past.
I know the Lord will lead me.
Send His Spirit to grant me peace.
I need not fear or feel alone.
His love will never cease.

In my daily acts and choices,
He is watching from above.
I must trust He knows all my needs,
Trust His wisdom, goodness, pow’r, and love.
I will seek His will and guidance,
Be an instrument in His hands.
I will show my faith by my works,
Obedient unto the Lord’s commands.

CHORUS

In those times of trial and hardship,
I have faith He’s felt my pain.
He will help me go through the storm,
To grow I need both sunshine and rain.
And as I continue onward,
Unto others I will give.
And endure in faith unto the end.
Faith is more than belief, it’s how I live!

CHORUS
