My Anchor Holds

Words (by Edward Mote in 1836) from a Christian hymn ‘My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less’, commonly sung to the 1863 tune by William Bradbury ‘The Solid Rock’ (WP) but also used with a different melody for the song Cornerstone (which is the name of the east Belfast community group) written on a ribbon wrapped around an anchor in east Belfast: “In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil.”

    Not Lutheran. Written by a Baptist pastor from England, Edward Mote

      Thanks – I have added Mote and changed “Lutheran” to “Christian” as it seems to be widely sung, not only by Baptists and Lutherans.
