  1. The Soul's Desire
    Poet Unknown


    T'were my soul's desire
    To see the face of God;
    It were my soul's desire
    To rest in His abode.

    It were my soul's desire
    To study zealously;
    This, too, my soul's desire,
    A clear rule set for me.

    It were my soul's desire
    A spirit free from gloom;
    It were my soul's desire
    New life beyond the Doom.

    It were my soul's desire
    To shun the chills of hell;
    Yet more my soul's desire
    Within His house to dwell.

    It were my soul's desire
    To imitate my King,
    It were my soul's desire
    His ceaseless praise to sing.

    It were my soul's desire
    When heaven's gate is won
    To find my soul's desire
    Clear shining like the sun.

    Grant, Lord, my soul's desire,
    Deep waves of cleansing sighs;
    Grant, Lord, my soul's desire
    From earthly cares to rise.

    This still my soul's desire
    Whatever life afford,
    To gain my soul's desire
    And see Thy face, O Lord



  2. Be Still, My Soul
    Poet: Katharina von Schlegel


    Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side;
    Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
    Leave to thy God to order and provide;
    In every change He faithful will remain.
    Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
    Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

    Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
    To guide the future as He has the past.
    Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
    All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
    Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
    His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

    Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on
    When. we shall be forever with the Lord,
    When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
    Sorrow forgot, life's purest joys restored.
    Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past,
    All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.



  3. We Have Anchor
    Poet: William J. Kirkpatrick


    Will your- anchor hold In the storms -of life?
    When the clouds unfold their wings of strife?
    When the strong tides lift, and the - cables strain
    Will your anchor drift, or firm remain?

    We have an anchor that keeps the soul
    Steadfast and sure while the billows roll.
    Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
    Grounded firm and deep in the Savior's love.

    It is safely moored; 'twill, the storm withstand,
    For 'tis well secured by the Savior's hand,
    And the cables passed from His heart to mire
    Can defy the blast through strength divine.

    It will firmly hold in the straights of fear
    When the breakers have told the reef is near.
    'Though the tempest rave and the wild, winds blow,
    Not an angry wave shall our bark o'er flow.

    It will surely hold in the floods of death,
    When the waters cold chill our latest breath.
    On the rising tide it can never fail
    While our hopes abide within the veil.

    When our eyes behold through the gathering night
    The city of gold, our harbor bright,
    We shall anchor fast by the heavenly shore
    With the storms all past forever more.
