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 Blessed Sabbath Home, within thy walls
We have meet to worship now;
Here love’s gifts we bring to our Savior, King,
At whose holy feet we bow.

Blessed Sabbath Home, happy Sabbath home!
Here we meet in bonds divine;
Blessed Sabbath Home; happy Sabbath Home,
What a hallowed peace is thine.

2 Blessed Sabbath Home, how oft our hearts
Turn with longing unto thee;
Where the wings of praise our glad souls upraise,
That we nearer Christ may be. [Refrain]

3 Blessed Sabbath Home, thy pleasures dear,
Are a foretaste of our joy;
When our souls shall meet in the bliss complete
That will never know alloy. [Refrain]

4 When we leave for aye this Sabbath Home,
With its many sacred ties;
In triumphant song with the saintly throng,
May we join beyond the skies. [Refrain]
