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.

Enough for me

Who Jesus is, I cannot tell

Representative Text

1 Who Jesus is, I cannot tell,
Or whence He came, where He doth dwell;
I only know He mixed the clay,
And touched my eyes, and it was day.

I once was blind, but now I see,
And that is quite enough for me,
For me, for me,
And that is quite enough for me.

2 A sinner He? they call Him so,
But whether true I do not know;
One thing is very plain to me,
He touched my eyes, and now I see. [Refrain]

3 Was it e’er known, since time began,
That one born blind was healed of man?
But He who scatters life abroad,
Must be the very Son of God. [Refrain]

4 This wondrous man! is He the Lord?
And am I list’ning to His word?
My Jesus too! I do believe,
And thus my inner sight receive. [Refrain]
