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.

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 walking today in the sweet Beulah land,
I have crossed to the glory side,
I am washed in the blood, and my soul is made white,
And I know I am sanctified.

Refrain:
Glory, Glory to God,
My heart now is cleansed from sin,
I’ve abandoned myself to the Holy Ghost,
And His fullness abides within.

2 I am now going on to explore Beulah land,
‘Tis the gift of my Lord to me;
I am tasting its joys, I am walking in light,
And the face of my Savior see. [Refrain]

3 I have found a sweet peace that the world cannot know,
As I walk by my Savior’s side,
I am kept by His pow’r, I am led by His hand,
And I’ll ever with Him abide. [Refrain]

4 Oh, the sweetness of love that enraptures my soul,
For communion with Christ I know!
I am happy in Him, and today thro’ my soul
Living streams of salvation flow. [Refrain]
