The song is " What a Savior".

Once I was straying in sin's dark valley,
No hope withing could I see,
I searched Thru heaven and found a Savior,
To save a poor lost sould like me


Oh what a Savior! Oh Hallelujah
His heart was broken on Calvary,
HIs hands we nail scared: His side was driven,
He gave his life blood for you and me

He left the Father, with all his riches,
WIth calmess sweet and serene,
Came down from heaven and gave his life blood
To make the vilest sinner clean.


Death's chilly waters I'll soon be crossing,
His hands will lead me safe o're
I'll join the chirus in that great city,
And sing up there for ever more


It is a beautiful song, and if you need the music
I might be able to direct you.

You're Looking At Go'ds Grace

Verse 1

Take a look my hands, there are no nail prints there.
Take a look at my brow, no crown of thorns do I wear.
Take a look at my back, no whip has ever left a trace.
And when you're looking at me, you're looking at God's grace.


When you're looking at me, you're looking at God's grace.
I should have hung on the cross in disgrace.
But God sent His Son there to die in my place.
And when you're looking at me, you're looking at God's grace.

Verse 2

Take a look at a woman who once was condemned.
Take a look at a woman who had no hope within.
Oh but praise God through Jesus, all my sins have been erased,
So take a good look at me, you're looking at God's grace.

The song is on an older recording of the Jody Brown Indian Family titled Just Blessed.  I hope this is the song you wanted.

When you're posting the lyrics to any song -- PLEASE Proof Read before you save it.  Oh, What A Savior has several misspelled words.  Maybe I wouldn't be so picky if I hadn't played for quartets for years - the last one having one of the last members of The Stamps Quartet in it (W.R. "Billy" Porter).

The song is "My Anchor Holds", not "The Anchor Holds" and is in many church hymnals.

To the guest who posted on September 26, 2007:   Kind Sir, you had an opportunity which you chose to bypass, to post "Oh What a Savior" in its perfect format, but you did not. Instead, it was far more important to you to chide the poster of "Oh What a Savior" for not proof reading the song. Meanwhile, many of us got blessed by the lyrics of this humble servant.  I know what you MEANT to do was THANK the person who ministered to us through this song. My name is Madlyn.

I don't think the lyrics posted to Oh What a Savior are quite right.  But, you can get the version by the Gaithers on itunes.  It's wonderful!
