Representative Text

1 Blest revelation, wondrous salvation,
God in love doth for the lost of earth provide;
Sins like a mountain lost in the fountain,
Calv'ry's stream forever flows, a cleansing tide.

Safe in the hollow of His hand,
Safe in the hollow of His hand,
To His promise clinging, evermore I'm singing;
I am safe within the hollow of God's hand.

2 Nothing can harm me, naught can alarm me,
Fiercely tho' the tempest rage o'er sea and land;
Waking or sleeping safe in His keeping,
Kept within the hollow of His mighty hand. [Refrain]

3 Come all ye burden'd and heavy laden!
Without doubting all your cares upon Him roll;
Gracious forever, strong to deliver,
Ye shall surely find sweet rest unto your soul. [Refrain]

Author: C. H. Morris

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
