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 Ever blessed Jesus, listen unto me;
Bow Thine ear and hear me, while I call to Thee;
I am weak and sinful,Thou art pure and strong;
Take my hand dear Jesus, lead Thy child along.

Take my hand, dear Jesus, let me never stray;
Take my hand and lead me, in the better way.

2 Ever blessed Jesus, bless Thy wayward child,
Keep my feet from straying thro’ the desert wild;
I would never wander from Thy loving side;
Ever blessed Jesus, be my constant guide. [Refrain]

3 Help me, blessed Jesus, leave me not alone;
Give me strength and patience till each duty’s done;
And when life is ended, I Thy face would see;
Hear my prayer, dear Jesus, take me up to Thee. [Refrain]
