Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

1 I know not what to ask,
O Saviour mine;
Be this my earnest pray’r,
O keep me Thine;
Hold Thou my trembling hand,
That I may know
Thou art beside me still,
Where’er I go.

2 I know not what is best,
But Thou can’st see;
Then let me leave it all,
My Lord, to Thee;
Whate’er Thy mercy grants,
Or love denies,
My faith shall turn to Thee
Her grateful eyes.

3 I know not where the path
That I should tread,
Unless Thy gracious light
Is o’er me shed;
I know not if this hour
My last may be,
But this, O Lord, I know,
‘Tis well with me.
