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 Dig bede vi, Børnene dine,
O Herre, Fader sød,
Formindsk vor Sorrig og Pine,
Giv os vort daglige Brød,
Ophold du os og Livet,
Som du os selv haver givet,
Indtil vi det evige faa!

2 Velsigne med din Dale,
Hvad du os haver bered,
At det kan os husvale,
Og Hjertet bedres derved!
Lad os i din Tjeneste blive
Og Kjærligheds Gjerninger drive
Altid imod hver Mand!

3 Du ville Naade bevise
Og ene skaffe Trøst,
Alle Hungrige bespise,
Og kjærlig lindre vor Brøst!
Da skulle vi bekjende
Din Kjærlighed uden Ende,
Og altid lyde dig.
