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 Art thou weary, soul, of straying?
God knows, He knows it all;
Come to Him, make no delaying,
He knows it all.

Come with thy sorrow, come with thy care;
Come with thy burden so heavy to bear;
He knows thy sorrow, He knows it all;
Come to thy helper, oh, heed now His call.

2 Is the pathway long and dreary?
God knows, He knows it all;
He will strengthen thee when weary,
He knows it all. [Refrain]

3 Do thy cherished friends forsake thee?
God knows, He knows it all;
To His sheltering arms betake thee,
He knows it all. [Refrain]
