Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

287. I Am Not Skilled to Understand

1 I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned;
I only know at His right hand
Is One who is my Savior!

2 I take Him at His word indeed;
“Christ died for sinners,” this I read;
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Savior!

3 That He should leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange? So once did I,
Before I knew my Savior!

4 And O, that He fulfilled may see
The travail of His soul in me,
And with His work contented be,
As I with my dear Savior!

5 Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior!
