Verse 1:
            A
You are my anchor,
                   E/G♯ 
My light and my salvation.
            F♯m7
You are my refuge,
F♯m                    Esus4    E
    My heart will not fear.
      A/C♯   D                  A/C♯     A
Though my foes surround me on ev'ry hand,
     A/C♯    D                       A/C♯        E
They will stumble and fall while in grace I stand.
   A/C♯  D                F♯m7                   G   D/F♯
In my  day of trouble You hide me and set me above
Esus4            E
    To sing this song of love.
Chorus:
A        D            Esus4      E
    One thing I will ask of You, this will I pray:
A      D              Esus4         E
    To dwell in Your house, O Lord, every day,
F♯m    B/D♯   E/D      A/C♯      D
    To gaze upon Your lovely face,
A/C♯  Bm7        D/E             A 
And rest in the Father's embrace.
A  E/G♯  F♯m E  E  D/E  A   A   E/G♯  F♯m  E  E       A
                                                (last time)                                                  
Verse 2:
D/E            A
Teach me Your way, Lord,
                         E/G♯ 
Make straight the path before me.
             F♯m7
Do not forsake me, 
F♯m                Esus4    E
    My hope is in You.
   A/C♯  D                     A/C♯     A
As I  walk through life, I am confident
  A/C♯  D                      A/C♯    E
I will see Your goodness with ev'ry step,
    A/C♯    D                  F♯m7                  G   D/F♯ 
And my   heart directs me to seek You in all that I do,
Esus4         E
    So I will wait for You.

YOU ARE MY ANCHOR
My light and my salvation.
You are my refuge,
My heart will not fear.
Though my foes surround me on every hand,
They will stumble and fall
While in grace I stand.
In my day of trouble
You hide me and set me above
To sing this song of love.

One thing I will ask of You, this will I pray:
To dwell in Your house, O Lord, every day,
To gaze upon Your lovely face,
And rest in the Father's embrace.

Teach me Your way, Lord,
Make straight the path before me.
Do not forsake me, my hope is in You.
As I walk through life, I am confident
I will see Your goodness with every step,
And my heart directs me to seek You
In all that I do,
So I will wait for You.
