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 At the judgment seat of Christ, my Saviour,
All the nations shall be called to stand;
And all people shall appear before Him,
On His left, or on His own right hand.

At the judgment where wilt thou appear?
Will it be on the right hand,
Will it be on the left hand?
At the judgment where wilt thou be found,
When before Him thou shalt stand?

2 He shall separate them like a shepherd,
Oh, what partings in that awful day!
“Come, ye blessed to the heav’nly mansions,
Go, ye cursed, from my throne away.” [Chorus]

3 Loved ones on one side, and, on the other,
Weeping, as they part to meet no more,
God shall wipe away the tears of Christians,
As they pass thro' heaven’s open door. [Chorus]

4 At the judgment seat of Christ, my Saviour,
When all nations shall be gathered there,
Wilt thou be upon His right hand, brother,
Evermore the bliss of heav’n to share? [Chorus]
