Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 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]
