When I was a little girl my Father would sing to me. Often encouraging me to sing along. One song in particular sticks in my memory. When I was afraid he would pull me up on his lap, put his arm around me and lean his head towards mine as he sang.
The words and melody are from my memory. I can find no record of it in my many searches. If someone knows the name of the composer please tell me so I can give them credit.
Somehow late on this Good Friday it seems like the sort of song we need to hear.
Here are the words and a short recording.
- ( chorus) In the hollow of His hand. In the hollow of His hand. I know my Lord will hold me in the hollow of His hand.
- One day as I was walking along this pilgrim way, the Savior came and spoke to me and then I heard Him say. (chorus)
- Well I may not preach like Peter and I may not pray like Paul, but I can tell the love of Jesus and say He died for all. (chorus)
Take courage …Sunday’s coming…
