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 knows the trials of each day,
Tho’ shadows fall, He knows the way;
The eyes that weep, the hearts that pray,
He knows, my Father knows.

He knows, my Father knows,
And shields me from my foes,
From day to day He leads the way,
He knows, my Father knows.

2 Tho’ oft I seem to walk alone,
Life’s weary way with thorns o’ergrown,
His love has sealed me for His own,
He knows, my Father knows. [Refrain]

3 Upon His mighty arm I lean,
He helps me thro’ life’s changing scene,
From sin and strife He keeps me clean,
He knows, my Father knows. [Refrain]

4 His love, His love is past compare,
My ev’ry sorrow He doth share,
I cannot drift beyond His care,
He knows, my Father knows. [Refrain]
