We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

I cannot think or reason

Representative Text

1. I cannot think or reason,
I only know He came
With hands and feet of healing
And wild heart all aflame,
With eyes that dimmed and softened
At all the things He saw,
And in His pillared singing
I read the marching law.

2. I only know He loves me,
Enfolds and understands—
And oh, His heart that holds me,
And oh, His certain hands—
The man, the Christ, the soldier,
Who from the cross of pain,
Cried to a dying comrade,
Lad, we shall meet again.
