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.

The Searcher of Hearts

Representative Text

1 O Lord, my inmost heart and thought
Thy searching eye doth see;
Where'er I rest, where'er I go,
My ways are known to Thee.

2 Each spoken word, each silent thought
Thou, Lord, dost understand;
Before me and behind art Thou,
Restraining by Thy hand.

3 If I the wings of morning take
To some remotest land,
Still I shall be upheld by Thee
And guided by Thy hand.

4 From Thee, O Lord, I cannot hide,
Though darkness cover me;
The darkness and the light of day
Are both alike to Thee.

5 Search me, O God, and know my heart,
Try me, my thoughts to know;
O lead me, if in sin I stray,
In paths of life to go.

The New Christian Hymnal, 1929
