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, 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,

Jesus cares

Full Text

1 When the cares of life are crowding
Thick and fast upon your soul,
And your light has turned to darkness
Ere you reach the longed for goal,
Let your heart be brave and trusting,
While you clasp the Saviour's hand;
For no matter what the burden,
He will surely understand.

Just to know Jesus cares,
Just to know Jesus cares;
In the darkest night, O what wondrous light!
Just to know he cares.

2 What a blessing when temptations
Come with overwhelming pow'r.
And a sin seems O so little,
In the weakness of the hour,
That we have a loving Jesus
By whose grace the soul expands,
Gaining strength to meet and conquer,
Just because he understands. [Chorus]

3 When our souls are freed from sorrows,
And the glad new day has dawned,
We shall see with brightened vision
Where the dark despairs had yawned.
We may look into the beauty
Of his face, in that fair land,
Seeing all its love and glory
When we, too, shall understand. [Chorus]
