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 Come, Spirit, come in mighty pow'r,
As on the blessed day of old
When fell the Pentecostal show'r
That gathered thousands to the fold.

Chorus:
Nothing but the pow'r of the Holy Ghost
Can sanctify and keep thro' a Savior’s love,
And light within our souls the flame
That burns on the altar of heav’n above.

2 O for a mighty rushing wind
To fill this consecrated place,
That sinners lost might seek and find
The gate of hope, the door of grace. [Chorus]

3 O for a pow'r that heals the heart,
That takes away the dross of sin,
That we may, like the world, depart,
And let the King of Glory in. [Chorus]

4 Dear Savior, from Thy throne on high
Now grant the pow'r for which we call,
Till shouts of rapture fill the sky,
And Thou, O Lord, art all in all. [Chorus]
