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.

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 Come, justified soul, to the cross,
The fullness is waiting for thee;
The will of the Lord is revealed in His Word,
That thou shouldst now sanctified be.

Refrain:
Come, seek it today,
No longer delay,
Before Him in humbleness bow;
And low at the cross,
Count all things but loss,
Oh, come and be sanctified now.

2 Why harbor a foe in thy breast?
Why have such a battle within?
Oh, come and be blest with a perfect soul-rest—
A rest of full freedom from sin. [Refrain]

3 The veil of the holiest place
Is rent and wide open for thee;
A new living way giveth entrance today
To grace that is boundless and free. [Refrain]

4 The blood of the Savior will cleanse
From all the inherited sin;
Then grace to thy heart will the Spirit impart,
Thus make and keep holy within. [Refrain]
