He holds me

Representative Text

1 Tho’ I falter and am weak God’s hand still holds me,
Yes, He holds me in the hollow of His hand;
Tho’ my faith at times may waver and distress me,
Yet He holds me in the hollow of His hand.

Still He holds me, yes, He holds me,
Tho’ the waves of doubt may sweet me to and fro;
I place my hand in His, He draws me closer,
I trust Him, for He will not let me go.

2 Many times the tempter’s voice is heard behind me,
Bidding me to join His faithless, sinful band,
Then I go in haste to Jesus and He holds me,
Yes, He holds me in the hollow of His hand. [Refrain]

3 I am praying that some day I may be able
Just to reach those heights beyond the tempter’s pow’r,
When I’ll rise above the world and its temptation,
Trusting Jesus ev’ry day and ev’ry hour. [Refrain]

4 Then some day around my Father’s throne in glory
I shall meet my loved ones on the golden strand,
How my happy heart will leap with joy and gladness;
That He kept me in the Hollow of His hand. [Refrain]
