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.

1 There's a quiet retreat, where with Jesus I meet,
And my burdens I place in His hands;
Ev'ry sorrow I bear, ev'ry heart-breaking care,
Jesus knows, and He understands.
He knows, (And He understands,)
He knows, (And He understands;)
Ev'ry sorrow I bear, ev'ry heart-breaking care,
Jesus knows, and He understands.

2 When o'ercome by my grief, nothing brings such relief
As the touch of His comforting hands;
Ev'ry burden He bore for my sins o'er and oe'r,
Jesus knows, and He understands.
He knows, (And He understands,)
He knows, (And He understands;)
Ev'ry burden He bore for my sins o'er and oe'r,
Jesus knows, and He understands.

3 When my friends all forsake, and my sad heart would break,
I reach out to His beckoning hands;
They were wounded for me, that thro' faith I might see,
Jesus knows, and He understands.
He knows, (And He understands,)
He knows, (And He understands;)
They were wounded for me, that thro' faith I might see,
Jesus knows, and He understands.

4 Whether weary or sad, whether cheerful or glad,
I will cling to those nail-pierced hands;
For they point day be day to my Home far away,
Jesus knows, and He understands.
He knows, (And He understands,)
He knows, (And He understands;)
For they point day be day to my Home far away,
Jesus knows, and He understands.
