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 I am Jesus’ little friend;
On His mercy I depend;
If I try to please Him ever,
If I grieve His Spirit never,
O how very good to me
Will my Savior always be!

Refrain:
I am Jesus’ little friend;
On His mercy I depend.

2 Very young and weak am I,
Yet He guides me with His eye;
In a pleasant path He leads me,
With a gentle hand He feeds me,
Chides me when I’m doing wrong,
Listens to my happy song. [Refrain]

3 He is with me all the day,
With me in my busy play;
O’er my waking and my sleeping,
Jesus still a watch is keeping;
I can lay me down and rest,
Sweetly pillowed on His breast. [Refrain]

4 I am Jesus’ little friend;
On His mercy I depend;
Jesus will forsake me never;
He will keep me safe forever;
How I wish my heart could be,
Loving Savior, more like Thee! [Refrain]
