We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Jesus knows

Representative Text

1. When the twilight's softly stealing
O'er the busy scenes of day,
Quiet shadows near me linger,
And I long to steal away
Where the whippoorwill is calling
And the evening's sweet repose
Seems to whisper softly, gently,
"Child of sorrows, Jesus knows."

2. Jesus know the deepest longings
And the sorrows of thy heart;
Why dost thou not fully trust him
Cease thy weeping, do thy part?
What tho' clouds may round thee gather
Darker trials day by day?
In thy dreams bright angels whisper,
"Child of sorrows, watch and pray."
