Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Thou knowest, Lord, Thou knowest all about me,
And all the winding way my feet have trod;
And now Thou knwo'st I cannot go without Thee,
To guide me onward thro' the swelling flood.

2 Thou know'st my way —, how lone, how dark, how cheerless,
If Thy dear hand I fail in all to see;
Bright with Thy smile of love, my heart is fearless,
When in my weakness I can lean on Thee.

3 Give me Thy presence! Go Thou, Lord, before me,
Make a plain path where all is rough and drear;
So let me trust the love that watches o'er me,
And in the shadows still believe Thee near.
