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 Ho! every on that thirsteth,
Come drink a full supply,
From cool and crystal waters,
Whose springs are never dry;
Come ye that have no money,
The gospel feast partake;
Where God, the Holy Spirit,
The Bread of Life will break.

Ho! every one that thirsteth,
Come drink a full supply,
From cool and crystal waters,
Whose springs are never dry.

2 Why spend your time and labor
On things that fade and die?
Why cast away a treasure
That wealth can never buy?
Now seek the Lord in earnest,
With humble, holy fear,
And haste to call upon Him
While yet He lingers near. [Refrain]

3 O, come your ear inclining,
Hear, and your soul shall live;
Forsake the path of sinners,
Return and He’ll forgive.
To all who truly love Him,
His mercy He will show,
And His abundant pardon,
He freely will bestow. [Refrain]
