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 love to sing about Jesus,
When all are glad and gay;
The heart sings out with a joyful shout
The words that we long to say.

I love to sing about Jesus,
I love to sing about Jesus,
I love to sing about Jesus,
Because He died for me.

2 I love to sing about Jesus,
When sorrow clouds the day;
I know some song of His tender love
Will scatter the clouds away. [Refrain]

3 I love to sing about Jesus,
It keeps my heart from sin;
For when it’s full of my Savior’s praise,
No evil can dwell therein. [Refrain]

4 I love to sing about Jesus,
‘Tis all that I can do;
And if I faithfully sing His praise,
Some others may love Him too. [Refrain]
