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, 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,

1 My Father knows my need,
And I can trust His love;
He may not always deign to give me
The things which I most crave.

My Father knows, Oh yes, He knows,
And with my soul ’tis well.

2 My Father knows my need,
He will supply it all;
He hears His children when they cry, and
He answers when they call. [Refrain]

3 My Father knows my need,
His love no tongue can tell;
And if sometimes He does deny me,
I know for me ’tis well. [Refrain]

4 My Father knows my need,
He knows my strength is small,
So I will trust His love and grace, for
He will not let me fall. [Refrain]

5 My Father knows my need,
I fear no dread alarms,
For round about and underneath me
Are everlasting arms. [Refrain]
