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

1. He knows: let this my comfort be;
He knows the path designed for me;
A healing balm for all my woes—
O blessèd thought! my Savior knows.

Refrain
My prayer for strength to Him is known,
Tho’ breathed in secret and alone;
The weary heart, the tear that flows,
O blessèd thought! my Savior knows!

2. The thorns that pierce my weary feet;
The low’ring clouds, the storms that beat;
And then, with bliss of calm repose,
O blessèd thought! my Savior knows.[Refrain]

3. He knows: let this suffice for me;
He knows the end I cannot see;
Then let my anxious heart be still,
And patient, wait my Savior’s will.[Refrain]
