I am safe, whatever may betide me;
I am safe, whoever may deride me;
I am safe, as long as I confide me
In the hollow of God’s hand.

Refrain

In the hollow of His hand!
In the hollow of His hand!
I am safe while God Himself doth hold me
In the hollow of His hand.

What tho’ fierce the stormy blasts roar round me;
What tho’ sore life’s trials oft confound me;
I am safe, for naught of ill can wound me
In the hollow of God’s hand.

Refrain

Everlasting arms of love enfold me;
Words of peace the voice divine has told me;
I am safe, while God Himself doth hold me,
In the hollow of His hand.
