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

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.

Refrain:
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]
