My ship has been battered; dreams have slipped through my fingers; I wondered if I would lose my mind but I never did. He has kept me...and it keeps getting better and better, in spite of the storms (which still come). Peace in the storm is the only way to be sure the peace is real and lasting and will hold.

When in life's depressing moments i look at how battered and torn my ship is and cried that i couldn't stay afloat in the storm anymore. That's when God motions me to look at my rusty, old, and caring anchor. I always cry when i realize how i've endured storms and storms,cyclones, and tsunamis of life and all i have to trust is the anchor. God bless humanity from paradise Fiji.

the song is an inspiration to me, presently there are several raging seas in my life but I know the anchor will hold because Jesus is in the boat of my life. The song will forever be a great source of hope to me.

PRAISE GOD for that anchor, i,ve had to hold on so many times,i,ve gotten wet many times but never drowned. Just today even i got a message from GOD telling me STOP, don,t go there. ,the outcome could be very bad. I said YES JESUS , thank you i don,t need to invite trouble into my life

There's a huge difference between someone singing a song & someone singing a song that they've 'lived' in their life. Donnie Summer has lived every word of this great hymn. I have watched the Sumner's since I was a little girl. Thank you, Donnie, for an amazing video. Love you & love seeing you on Gaither programs. Keep singing! Enjoy you so much. Not sure how anyone can watch this video & not be touched. God Bless!

Patsy Frazier (1 month ago)
Angelina Rucho-Find a son that has no mother or father and help him. There are so many lonely people that need the guidence of a friend to navigate these days of rough seas we are experiencing. We should give of ourselves. We may be surprised how much heart we really do have.

Thank you, Father for the glorious spiritual songs, hymns and testimonies of the Body of Christ, knowing that there are no testimonies without tests and that nothing can separate us from Your Great Heart of love and nothing can snatch us from Your Mighty Hands. Glory to the Holy One of Israel. Worthy is the Lamb of God for sinners slain.

Brandon Davidson I like this version better too. I signed Ray Boltz's "Thank You" 2x. First time was at my pastor's 8th pastoral anniversary service last year. Second time was at a church Christmas gathering. I'd like to hear Donnie sing that one just to hear what it would sound like.

Brandon Davidson (2 years ago)
+Melissa Goodloff Ray Boltz' voice is terrible for this song, and his backwards theology of condoning homosexuality is both suspicious in its origins and revolting in its expression.
