Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. O, soul tossed on the billows,
Afar from friendly land,
Look up to Him who holds thee in
The hollow of His hand.

Refrain
In The hollow of His hand,
In the hollow of His hand,
O how safe are all who trust Him,
In The hollow of His hand.

2. Tho’ raging winds may drive thee,
A wreck upon the strand,
Still cling to Him who holds thee in
The hollow of His hand. [Refrain]

3. When strength is spent in toiling,
And wearily you stand,
Then rest in Him who holds thee in
The hollow of His hand. [Refrain]

4. And when at last we’re gathered,
With all the ransomed band,
We’ll praise our God who holds us in
The hollow of His hand. [Refrain]
