Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 When sorrow’s cup pours out its woe,
And bitter tears unbidden flow,
My hiding place shall ever be,
In him who wept in blood for me.
He knows the depth of all my grief,
And touch’d with pity, sends relief;
He knows the depth of all my grief,
And touch’d with pity, sends relief.

2 When trials hard and cares oppress,
To sink my soul in deep distress,
My resting place, my strength is he,
Who bore the greater cross for me.
He knows its weight, and when I cry,
In mercy moved, doth grace supply;
He knows its weight, and when I cry,
In mercy moved, doth grace supply.

3 His pity brought him to the tree,
Whereon he shed his blood for me,
Thor’ him I claim the promise giv’n,
Thro’ him alone I enter heav’n.
He is my refuge and my stay,
My present help in life alway;
He is my refuge and my stay,
My present help in life alway.
