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 don’t care what this world may say
O glory hallelujah;
This world may talk and I will pray,
O glory hallelujah.

Sing on, pray on, we are gaining ground,
O glory hallelujah;
The power of the Lord is coming down,
O glory hallelujah.

2 I’d rather pray myself away,
O glory hallelujah;
Than live in hell on half a day,
O glory hallelujah. [Chorus]

3 I’ll tell you what I mean to do,
O glory hallelujah;
I mean to stick to the noisy crew,
O glory hallelujah. [Chorus]

4 Then I will tell to sinners all around,
O glory hallelujah;
What a dear Saviour I found,
O glory hallelujah. [Chorus]

5 I’ll tell you when I feel the best,
O glory hallelujah
It’s when my soul has stood the test,
O glory hallelujah. [Chorus]

6 The fire came down just like a flash,
O glory hallelujah;
And burnt up all the devil’s trash,
O glory hallelujah [Chorus]

7 The Holy Ghost he has come down,
O glory hallelujah;
And in my heart he makes his home,
O glory hallelujah. [Chorus]
