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 He knoweth thy grief,
He knoweth thy care,
He giveth relief,
Go find it in prayer.

He knoweth thy grief,
Each pang thou dost feel,
And all of thy wounds,
Thy Saviour will heal.

2 He knoweth thy pain,
Thy tears He doth see,
And never in vain,
Thy suff’ring shall be. [Refrain]

3 He knoweth it all,
The wearisome way,
And when thou dost all,
He’ll life thee each day. [Refrain]
