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

Full Text

1 I cannot see, with my small human sight,
Why God should lead this way or that for me;
I only know He saith, “Child, follow me”;
But I can trust, But I can trust!

2 I know not why my path should be at times
So straitly hedged, so strangely barred before;
I only know God could keep wide the door,
And I can trust, And I can trust!

3 I often wonder, as with trembling hand
I cast the seed along the furrowed ground,
If ripened fruit for God will there be found;
But I can trust, But I can trust!

4 I cannot know why suddenly the storm
Should rage so fiercely ‘round me in its wrath;
But this I know, God watches all my path,
And I can trust, And I can trust!

5 I may not draw aside the mystic veil
That hides the unknown future from my sight;
Nor know if for me waits the dark or light;
But I can trust, But I can trust!
