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

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."
