Soul Anchor Poem

Written by Lim Lay Hsuan

Inspired by Hebrews 6:19
“We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain.” (ESV)

Merciless storms and roaring waves,
Batter us well beyond repair.
Relentless quakes and violent shakes,
Defeat us utterly to the ground.

Oh such gloom fills the night sky,
Doom and despair permeate the air.
The heavens rained down its tears,
With grief and sorrow upon this land.

Faith tested, stirred and shaken,
Down and out, but not uprooted.
Broken but still clinging on to hope,
Amidst uncertainty and ambiguity.

Because Your love is everlasting,
We trust Your mercy and loving-kindness.
Our strong fortress and firm foundation,
Jesus Christ the Lord, our soul anchor.
