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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Upon my knees before the throne,
I love to talk with God alone,
I know He hears, I know He sees
Me as I wait upon my knees.

Upon my knees, upon my knees,
I know He hears, I know He sees;
My faith grows strong, the tempter flees,
While I am there upon my knees.

2 Upon my knees I find relief,
From ev’ry sorrow care and grief,
Christ lifts my load with greatest ease
While I am waiting, on my knees. [Refrain]

3 Upon my knees He gives me grace
To run with patience, life’s short race,
My strength renewed, my weakness leaves
While I am there upon my knees. [Refrain]

4 Upon my knees, a soft retreat,
His Spirit guides me—O how sweet,
His presence seemed a heav’nly breeze
And thrills me there upon my knees. [Refrain]
