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.

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

Representative Text

1 I have left all sin’s dominion,
I’ll obey Thy sweet command;
Keep me, Lord, with glad submission
In the hollow of Thy hand.

In the hollow of His hand,
In the hollow of His hand;
He will keep me from all danger
In the hollow of His hand.

2 When the cares of life beset me,
I will firm for Jesus stand;
He has promised to protect me
In the hollow of His hand. [Refrain]

3 Keep me on the road to heaven,
Let me join that happy band;
Shield me from all sinful leaven
In the hollow of His hand. [Refrain]

4 When I end my pilgrim journey,
When I reach the shining strand,
I will praise the Lord who kept me
In the hollow of His hand. [Refrain]
