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.

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]
