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

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]
