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?

1 The clouds may hover o’er me,
The storms about me break,
My Saviour’s passed before me
And knows the way I take.

Refrain:
He knoweth the way I take,
He knoweth the way I take,
Whate’er betide he’s at my side
And never will he forsake,
He knoweth the way I take,
He knoweth the way I take,
In joy or pain, in loss or gain,
He knoweth the way I take.

2 Tis heaven all around me;
And if I sleep or wake
My Saviour’s love surrounds me,
He knows the way I take. [Refrain]

3 There may be heavy sorrows
Along my earthly way,
There is no dread, “Tomorrow”
But ever bright today. [Refrain]

4 So if the day be dreary,
And if the nights be long,
And if my soul grows weary
I’ll sing this joyous song. [Refrain]
