    Lyrics

    Burl Ives - Haven of Rest

    My soul in sad exile was out on life's sea,
    So burdened with sin and distressed,
    Till I heard a sweet voice, saying,
    "Make Me your choice";
    And I entered the Haven of Rest!

    Refrain
    I've anchored my soul in the Haven of Rest,
    I'll sail the wide seas no more;
    The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep,
    In Jesus I'm safe evermore.
    I yielded myself to His tender embrace,
    In faith taking hold of the Word,
    My fetters fell off, and I anchored my soul;
    The Haven of Rest is my Lord.

    Refrain
    I've anchored my soul in the Haven of Rest,
    I'll sail the wide seas no more;
    The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep,
    In Jesus I'm safe evermore.
    The song of my soul, since the Lord made me whole,
    Has been the old story so blest,
    Of Jesus, Who'll save whosoever will have
    A home in the Haven of Rest.

    Refrain
    I've anchored my soul in the Haven of Rest,
    I'll sail the wide seas no more;
    The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep,
    In Jesus I'm safe evermore.
    How precious the thought that we all may recline,
    Like John, the belovèd so blest,
    On Jesus' strong arm, where no tempest can harm,
    Secure in the Haven of Rest.

    Refrain
    I've anchored my soul in the Haven of Rest,
    I'll sail the wide seas no more;
    The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep,
    In Jesus I'm safe evermore.
    O come to the Savior, He patiently waits
    To save by His power divine;
    Come, anchor your soul in the Haven of Rest,
    And say, "My Belovèd is mine."

    Refrain
    I've anchored my soul in the Haven of Rest,
    I'll sail the wide seas no more;
    The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep,
    In Jesus I'm safe evermore.
