Of Anchors and Arrows
By: Stacey Steger and Ryan Davis

Verse I
F#m A
We envisioned her an anchor
F#m Bm
All strong and sure and lead
F#m A
She came in like an arrow
Em F#m
All sharp ready to embed

Verse II
F#m A
We looked to her for comfort
F#m Bm
A home to hold our faith
F#m A
We listened as she spoke the words
Em F#m
Rituals given to obey

Bm G
Do as you’re told
Bm G Em
Think as she thinks
Bm G
Speak as she speaks
Bm Em F#m Bm Em F#m
Or she’ll throw, throw, throw you to the sea

Verse III
F#m A
We hoped for a harbor
F#m Bm
All safety and iron
F#m A
Her walls were all poison
Em F#m
The air made us blind

Verse IIII
F#m A
Forgive me for my efforts
F#m Bm
Forgive where we offend
F#m A
Service of the loyal
Em F#m
That fails the call you give

It is our hope that these songs serve as a source of comfort and inspiration to those who have left and those who are thinking of leaving the church. ... more
