We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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. 

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

O thou that dost in secret see

O thou that dost in secret see

Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O thou that dost in secret see,
Regard a dying sinner's prayer,
Out of the deep I cry to thee--
Save, or I perish in despair.

2 Weeping, to Thee I left mine eyes,
Mine eyes which fail with looking up,
For thee my heart laments and sighs--
Sick with desire and lingering hope.

3 O that I could but surely know
If I at last shall mercy find!
For what am I reserv'd below?
Tell me, thou Saviour of mankind!

4 Let others walk with thee in light,
But bless me with one parting ray,
And ere I close mine eyes in night,
Give me to see thy perfect day.
