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

Nobody Knows But Jesus

Representative Text

1 Have I burdens hard to bear?
Nobody knows but Jesus,
Who doth all my sorrows share,
Nobody knows but Jesus.

Chorus:
Nobody knows, nobody knows,
Nobody knows but Jesus.
Nobody knows, nobody knows,
Nobody knows but Jesus.

2 How my soul is freed from care,
Nobody knows but Jesus,
When I go to him in prayer,
Nobody knows but Jesus. [Chorus]

3 How to send a cheering ray,
Nobody knows but Jesus,
Turning darkness into day,
Nobody knows but Jesus. [Chorus]

4 How I long to see his face,
Nobody knows but Jesus,
How he fills me with his grace,
Nobody knows but Jesus. [Chorus]
