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

He Knows

When Jesus came, long years ago

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 When Jesus came, long years ago,
A little child was he,
And all that children feel and know,
He knows and feels for me.

2 In joy or fear to him I call,
He leads me day by day;
His heart can understand it all,
What I can never say.

3 His love will shelter and defend,
And ever grows more dear;
I never am without a Friend,
For Jesus Christ is near.

4 What precious treasure can I bring?
What labor of my hands?
A faithful, humble following
Is all his love demands.
