jesus is my only anchor

I LOVE this song. I’ve had part of it stuck in my head lately, especially as I’ve been falling asleep. But for some reason I couldn’t find it in my i-tunes, but alas after some googling it was found.

It’s called “Anchor” and it’s by Ross King:

It’s bigger than your doctrine

Cause there’s only so much mystery

That doctrine can explain

It’s bigger than tradition

Cause you’ll turn around and see that

All of your traditions have been changed

Hear what I am saying

All these things are fading

It’s bigger than your science

Cause your soul cannot be saved by anything

That scientists can prove

And it’s bigger than compliance

Cause even compliant people

Can be lured away from what is true

Hear what I am saying

Only trust in One Thing

Jesus is my only Anchor

Jesus is the only Way

Very few things last forever

And everything else floats away

It’s bigger than your politic

Cause there is no policy that rescues us out of

the Shadow-lands

It’s bigger than your rhetoric

Cause this is a living Word, you speak it

With your feet and with your hands

Hear what I am saying

All these things are fading

It’s more than just your conscience

Cause your conscience may be clean, that doesn’t mean

That you are innocent

It’s more than circumstances

Cause when your circumstances change,

How will you keep yourself content?

Hear what I am saying

Only trust in One Thing

We want it to be easy

To find the safest version of the truth

But we’ll find out what we really believe

When all we have to hold is You

It’s bigger than the words your preacher preaches

Cause I guarantee sometimes you will forget

what you have heard

It’s bigger than your Bible exegesis

Cause there are bound to be some days when you don’t

Understand a word

Hear what I am saying

Only trust in One Thing

Jesus is my only Anchor

Jesus is the only Way

Very few things last forever

Everything else floats away

Jesus is my only Lifeline

When I’m drifting in the sea

Very few things can be trusted

Only one thing rescues me
