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. O restless heart, why murmur?
The sun is shining still,
Though clouds may seem very near you,
God knows, it is His will.
Though clouds may seem very near you,
God knows, it is His will.

2. He knows the weary heartache,
The longing and unrest,
Come unto Me, He whispers,
And lean upon My breast.
Come unto Me, He whispers,
And lean upon My breast.

3. What most you wish and long for,
Might only bring you pain;
You cannot see the future
God’s purpose to explain.
You cannot see the future
God’s purpose to explain.

4. So trust, faint heart, thy master,
He doeth all things well,
His love to you is boundless,
And more than tongue can tell.
His love to you is boundless,
And more than tongue can tell.
