If you know where to get a bet­ter pho­to of Mor­ris,


Blest revelation, wondrous sal­va­tion,
God in love doth for the lost of earth provide;
Sins like a mountain, lost in the fountain,
Calv’ry’s stream for­ev­er flows, a cleansing tide.


Safe in the hollow of His hand,
Safe in the hollow of His hand,
To His promise clinging, ev­er­more I’m singing,
I am safe within the hollow of God’s hand.

Nothing can harm me, naught can alarm me,
Fiercely tho’ the tempest rage o’er sea and land;
Waking or sleeping, safe in His keeping,
Kept within the hollow of His mighty hand.


Come all ye burdened, and heavy laden,
Without doubting all your cares upon Him roll;
Gracious for­ev­er, strong to deliver,
Ye shall surely find sweet rest unto your soul.
