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.

1 Beautiful country! land of light!
Beautiful shores all golden bright!
Beautiful trees of fadeless green!
Beautiful flow’rs that grow between!
Beautiful lights along the shore!
Beautiful faith that bears us o’er!
Beautiful scenes that ne’er grow old,
Beautiful pleasures yet untold!
Beautiful scenes that ne’er grow old,
Beautiful pleasures yet untold.

2 Beautiful mansions built above!
Beautiful home of peace and love!
Beautiful all who enter there!
Beautiful are the robes they wear!
Beautiful strains of sweetest song!
Beautiful all the ransom’d throng!
Beautiful angels clothed in white!
Beautiful realms of pure delight!
Beautiful angels clothed in white!
Beautiful realms of pure delight.

3 Beautiful city, fair and grand!
Beautiful ever-blooming land!
Beautiful streets of golden pave!
Beautiful sea of glassy wave!
Beautiful gates of pearly white!
Beautiful Eden! God its light!
Beautiful harps of golden tone!
Beautiful our Eternal Home!
Beautiful harps of golden tone!
Beautiful our Eternal Home!
