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.

He Knoweth the Way

I know not the field where the master today

Tune: [I know not the field where the Master today]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I know not the field where the Master today
Would have me to glean, and the sheaves gather in;
But this I do know, He will show me the way
to garner the souls I am striving to win.

He knoweth the way,
His will I obey,
Whatever befall,
I can trust Him for all;
He knoweth, He knoweth the way.

2 A prayer, or a tear, of a glance of the eye,
May soften a heart that is careless or cold;
The Spirit will help me, if only I try
To lead a lost sinner back into the fold. [Refrain]

3 I cannot quite tell where today He will lead,
Or say on what errand He'll ask me to go;
And yet I am sure that whatever my need,
His wisdom and grace he will freely bestow. [Refrain]
