Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 All in Thy hands I leave, dear Lord,
All of life’s daily fret and sting,
All of my griefs whate’er they are,
This to my soul sweet peace doth bring.

All in Thy hands like a glad refrain,
Cometh the promise so sweet,
“Bring me Thy burden, I will sustain,
Give to Thee strength complete.”

2 All in Thy hands each hour, each day,
Whether cares may be great or small,
Jesus, dear Lord, I lean on Thee,
Thou art my refuge and my all. [Refrain]

3 All in Thy hands my Lord and King,
All of life’s sorrow, toil and pain,
All of my cares I bring to Thee,
Thy love my soul will e’er sustain. [Refrain]

4 All in Thy hands O rich reward,
Peace and joy it doth bring to me
Daily I rest in Thee, dear Lord,
Daily I’m leaning more on Thee. [Refrain]
