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 love my blessed Saviour,
He is so good to me;
He helps me thro’ life’s conflicts,
And gives me liberty.

Refrain:
I love Him, yes, I love Him,
I’m as happy as can be;
I know He died for sinners—
That takes in even me.

2 Oh, when I think how Jesus
Suffered and died for me,
I cannot help but love Him,
Unworthy tho’ I be. [Refrain]

3 Oh, who like Jesus, tell me,
Could all my sorrow share?
Oh, who like Him, life’s burdens
Would help me here to bear? [Refrain]

4 I tell Him all my troubles,
My hope on His is stayed;
He speaks so gently, saying,
“My child, be not afraid.” [Refrain]
