Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 On life’s pathway are there crosses?
Jesus knows and cares;
Do you suffer heavy losses?
Jesus knows and cares;
Doth there come the hour of weeping,
Treasures vanish from your keeping,
Bitter pain your heart be reaping?
Jesus knows and cares.

2 Tho’ life’s shadows dark are falling,
Jesus knows and cares;
Tho’ the future seems appalling,
Jesus knows and cares;
Tho’ the years their griefs are bringing,
Hushing ev’ry voice of singing,
Fear ye not, the cry is ringing,
Jesus knows and cares.

3 When the eventide is nearing,
Jesus knows and cares;
When the light is disappearing,
Jesus knows and cares;
When with tears the eyes are filling,
Anguish deep the soul is thrilling,
Peace he brings, his heart is willing;
Jesus knows and cares.

4 Are you heavy burdens bearing,
Jesus knows and cares;
Gladly all your sorrow sharing,
Jesus knows and cares;
Tho’ your life be filled with crying,
Pleasures vanished, joys be dying,
Yet look up beyond the sighing,
Jesus knows and cares.
