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.

Representative Text

1 When storms of life are raging and the way you cannot see,
Or when your burden causes you to fall,
Let not your heart be troubled, do not let your courage flee;
Just take the hand of Jesus, that is all.

Refrain:
Just take the hand of Jesus, that is all;
He’ll help you thro’ your trials great or small;
Oh, when you need a friend on whom you can depend,
Just take the hand of Jesus, that is all.

2 When sorrow overtakes you, tho’ your friends from you depart,
Unmindful of your pleading sigh or call,
Let not your faith decrease, but keep a peaceful, trusting heart,
And take the hand of Jesus, that is all. [Refrain]

3 When comes at last the summons, and the silent stream you see,
Let not the swelling waves your soul appall;
Remembering his promises, still true and fearless be,
And take the hand of Jesus, that is all. [Refrain]
