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 Heav’nly Father, King,
Unto Thee we bring,
Heartfelt praise and adoration,
And we pray that Thou,
Wilt in mercy now,
Save this “Flower of the nation.”

God save our town!
God save our town!
With a mighty show’r of Thy wondrous pow’r,
God save our town!

2 Grant, we pray, dear Lord,
By Thy Spirit’s sword,
Men in ev’ry walk and station,
May receive the touch,
That shall break sin’s clutch,
And be freed from condemnation. [Refrain]

3 May Thy church be thrill’d,
Ev’ry member filled
With the pow’r of Thy salvation;
Go from pew to pew,
Touch the clergy too,
Make, through Christ, a “new creation.” [Refrain]

4 So, dear Lord, we pray,
In Thine own good way,
Free from vice and degradation,
Till, in heav’n at last,
When this life is past,
We shall join its jubilation. [Refrain]
