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

1 I know not what a day may bring
Of joy or pain to me;
But from the past my soul has learned
To trust, O Lord, in thee.

Refrain:
And so, whate’er my spirit fill,
I trust and wait thy sovereign will;
Believing this, that thou, my Friend,
Wilt guide me safely to the end.

2 I know not what a day may bring,
Or where my path may lead;
But ev’ry promise in thy word
My soul delights to plead. [Refrain]

3 I know not what a day may bring,
It matters naught to me;
Since like a child by faith I rest,
Confiding, Lord, in thee. [Refrain]

4 I know not if my waking eyes
Another day may see;
But angel wings will quickly bear
My raptured soul to thee. [Refrain]
