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

Full Text

1 Only to know Thou art mine, Lord,
When I am tempted and tried;
Only to know Thou art near me,
My wav’ring footsteps to guide.

Refrain:
Only to know Thou art mine, Lord,
Only to know Thou art mine;
Fills me with joy, naught of earth can destroy,
Only to know Thou art mine.

2 Only to know Thou art mine, Lord,
When light is flooding my day;
Earth’s joys seem sweeter and lighter,
Treading life’s dark, rugged way. [Refrain]

3 Only to know Thou art mine, Lord,
When life’s dark shadows shall fall;
Only in faith to behold Thee,
Know Thou art all and in all. [Refrain]
