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

Jesus, Master, in thine hand

Jesus, Master, in thine hand

Representative Text

1 Jesus, Master, in thine Hand
Lead on thy Family,
'Till we all possess the land,
The promis'd Liberty:
There amidst the holy Throng
We all shall see thy blissful Face,
Singing one eternal Song
To Christ, the God of Grace.

2 In thy bleeding Heart shall we
All find our bless'd Abode;
Each disowning all for thee,
Thou wounded Lamb of God:
There possessing all we want
In thy rich Fulness, holy Lamb,
Hence we all are not content
To bear thy Cross and Shame.

3 In thy smitten Body sre
Are pure for evermore;
Happy to Eternity,
We will our Lord adore:
We in Christ, our Ark, abide,
O'er each Temptations still we soar;
We disdain the swelling Tide,
and soon shall reach the Shore.

4 Farewell all this World below,
And all that Earth calls good,
We rejoice no more in you,
We are redeem'd by Blood.
Now redeem'd to God we prove
A safe Asylum from our Fears;
All the Heights, and Depths of Love,
In Jesu's Blood appears.
