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, 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,

1 I am satisfied to know,
Tho’ I cannot understand
The path in which I go,
I’m led by His own hand.

It is God’s way, yes, God’s way,
Strange tho’ it may be,
And I follow on, “His will be done,”
“Nearer my God, to Thee.”

2 I am satisfied to be,
Tho’ I cannot comprehend
What all may mean to me,
Just where His tho’ts may trend. [Refrain]

3 I am satisfied to walk,
Tho’ the way may chast’ning seem,
If the afflicting hand,
But guide me up to Him. [Refrain]
