“The Anchor Holds” – Gaither Featuring Donnie Sumner Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater

This is a very touching performance of this famous gospel song “The Anchor Holds” by Donnie Sumner. Originally written by Ray Boltz, it brings so much encouragement and hope especially for those who are deeply struggling with addictions or life battles. There is hope in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Anchor of our souls. Let’s cry out to Him for help. He will get us through. The Anchor will surely hold!

Donnie Sumner, raised the son of a minister, is no new comer to the world of Christian music. Since childhood his favorite form of entertainment has been GOSPEL MUSIC with styles ranging from “Foot-stompin’ – hand-clappin’ revival tunes” to what has become known in today’s market as contemporary sacred music. Having devoted over forty years of his own life to the world of music, Donnie has carried on the tradition of others in his family who have also made their mark in this industry. Donnie is the nephew of the late J. D. SUMNER, nationally acclaimed as the “world’s lowest bass singer.” Both Donnie and J. D. were closely associated with the late ELVIS PRESLEY on both his stage appearances and his recordings. (Source: donniesumner.com)

The Anchor Holds

Ray Boltz

I have journeyed
Through the long, dark night
Out on the open sea

By faith alone
Sight unknown
And yet His eyes were watching me

The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn

I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm

I’ve had visions
I’ve had dreams
I’ve even held them in my hand

But I never knew
They would slip right through
Like they were only grains of sand

The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn

I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm

I have been young
But I am older now
And there has been beauty
That these eyes have seen

But it was in the night
Through the storms of my life
Oh, that’s where God proved
His love to me

The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn

I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm

I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm
