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 “Bear ye one another’s burdens,”
’Tis the blessed Master’s will;
Only thus can we be like him,
And the royal law fulfill.

With grace from above
Let us walk, let us walk in love;
Let us bear one another’s burdens,
Let us walk, let us walk in love.

2 “Bear ye one another’s burdens,”
For the road is rough at times,
And a kindly hand will strengthen
Him who stumbles as he climbs. [Refrain]

3 “Bear ye one another’s burdens,”
All our own will Jesus share;
Free the heart to feel for others,
Resting sweetly in his care. [Refrain]

4 “Bear ye one another’s burdens,”
Heart to heart and hand to hand;
’Tis the common faith unites us,
Pilgrims to one better land. [Refrain]
