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 Den Helt, som knuste Dødens Magt,
Han gik, alt som han havde sagt,
Til Faderen tilbage,
Da efter Paaske Morgengry
Han havde vandret her paany
I fyrretyve Dage.
Kom Sjæl,
Agt vel
Paa den største
Se ham stige
Op til Herlighedens Rige!

2 Følg med paa Berget, Følg hans Fjed,
Som Elisæus fulgte med
Den elskede Elias!
Bed saa indstændig, som han bad:
O, lad os aldrig skilles ad,
Forklærede Messias!
Hans Svar
Du har:
Vær kun rolig,
Følg mig trolig,
Stil din Klage,
Jeg er med dig alle Dage!
