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.

(My Life Flows On In Endless Song)

Hiding in His Mercy

Representative Text

1 God is my keeper, whom shall I fear?
Though burdens press me,
His hands caress me;
With grace to bless me,
Jesus is near.

Refrain:
In His mercy I will hide,
In His mercy I will hide;
In His pity He redeemed me,
In His mercy I will safely hide.

2 God is my portion; in life’s dark hour
He will uphold me,
Thus He hath told me;
His arms enfold me
With keeping pow’r. [Refrain]

3 God is my comfort, courage and rest,
He’ll not forsake me,
Strong He will make me,
Till He shall take me
Home with the blest. [Refrain]

4 God will be with me, faithful is He;
Friends are betraying,
Fond hopes decaying,
Still He is saying,
“Trust thou in Me.” [Refrain]
