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

Blessed is he that considereth the poor
the Lord will deliver him
the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble

Blessed is he that considereth the poor
the Lord will preserve him and keep him alive
thou wilt not deliver him into the will of his enemies

Blessed are the merciful
for they shall find mercy

follow after Charity
there is Faith Hope and Charity
but the greater of these is Charity

Blessed is he that considereth the poor
the Lord shall strengthen him
shall strengthen him upon the Bed of Languishing

he that giveth to the Poor
he lendeth to the Lord
and he will repay it

the poor man cry'd
and the Lord heard him and delivered
and deliver'd him from all his trouble

a Father to the Fatherless
the Widows
God and guide

pure religion and undefiled
befor God and the Father
is to vist the Widow and fatherless
and to keep himself unspoted
to keep himself unspoted from the World

blessed be the Lord God of Israel
from everlasting to everlasting
Amen praise the Lord
and let all the people say Amen
Hallelujah let them say Hallelujah Amen
