During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

Representative Text

1 Account me worthy, Lord, I pray,
To stand before Thy Son,
Should He from heaven descend today,
Or ere the night is done.

To stand before Thy Son!
To stand before Thy Son!
Account me worthy, Lord, I pray,
To stand before Thy Son!

2 A hope of seeing Him have I,
Of being like Him, too;
Then, search and purge and purify—
Yea, cleanse me thro’ and thro’. [Refrain]

3 My righteousness before His face
Is naught but guilt and shame;
No wedding robe but Calv’ry’s grace
Can bear His eyes of flame. [Refrain]

4 O, may I watch, my garments keep,
Lest when the trump shall should,
Awaking from a slothful sleep,
Unclothed I shall be found. [Refrain]

5 Let me be hidden in that hour
When, o’er the startled earth,
The tribulation wrath-clouds lower,
And break in death and dearth. [Refrain]

6 As branch abides within the vine,
May I in Christ, alone;
And confidence shall then be mine
When He receives His own. [Refrain]
