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

Representative Text

1 When tossed upon the billows,
Afar from friendly land,
I will look to him who holds me,
In the hollow of his hand,
Though rayless be my pathway,
By night the heavens spanned,
I will trust in him who holds me,
In the hollow of his hand.

Refrain:
In the hollow, of his hand,
In the hollow, of his hand,
I will trust in him who holds me,
In the hollow of his hand.

2 Though raging winds may drive me,
A wreck upon the strand,
I will cling to him who holds me,
In the hollow of his hand,
Though deadened sails hand o’er me,
By hast’ning winds unfanned,
I will wait on him who holds me,
In the hollow of his hand. [Refrain]

3 When by the swelling Jordan,
My feet in sinking sand,
I will cry to him who holds me,
In the hollow of his hand,
Ah, there is bliss in walking,
E’en tho’ a desert land,
In knowing that he holds me,
In the hollow of his hand. [Refrain]
