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

1110. I Know Not

1 I know not what lieth before me,
What shadows may fall on my way,
But I’m sure that my Lord watches over me,
And brightens each hour of the day.

Refrain:
I know not, I know not,
Yet He who commandeth the stars is my Guide!
I know not, I know not,
But safe in His keeping, I’m satisfied.

2 I know not what sorrows may enter
My life, or what griefs may be mine,
But I’m sure that my Lord will be with me, and
His mercy about me will shine. [Refrain]

3 I know not what burdens will bow me,
Ere duty and labor are past,
But I’m sure that my Lord, if I faithful prove,
Will know me in heaven at last. [Refrain]
