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

Representative Text

1 All the sorrows of thy life,
Jesus knows, He knows;
All the weary years of strife,
Jesus knows, He knows;
All thy burdens, all thy cares,
All thy agonizing prayers;
All the pain thy bosom bears,
Jesus knows, He knows.

2 All thy false friends and thy true,
Jesus knows, He knows;
When thy joys on earth are few,
Jesus knows, He knows;
When the world to thee seems drear,
When there is no helper near;
When thy heart is filled with fear,
Jesus knows, He knows.

3 All the path which thou shalt tread,
Jesus knows, He knows;
Rich the blessings He will shed,
Jesus knows, He knows;
Trust Him then and forward go,
He will guide thee here below;
And will shield thee from each foe,
Jesus knows, He knows.
