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’ll praise Thee, Savior, Prince of Peace,
In songs of praise that ne’er shall cease;
While time and life and tho’t endure,
I’ll praise Thee, Savior, evermore.

And above the rest this not shall swell,
This not shall swell, this note shall swell,
And above the rest this not shall swell,
My Jesus hath done all things well.

2 I’ll praise Thee for the crimson flood,
For cleansing in Thy precious blood;
I’ll praise Thee for Thy Spirit’s pow’r,
That fills and keeps me hour by hour. [Chorus]

3 I’ll praise Thee for salvation’s might,
That turns my darkness into light;
That scatters all my gloom and sin,
I’ll praise Thee, O, my Savior King. [Chorus]

4 I’ll praise Thee when ‘tis dark and drear,
‘Mid sorrow’s frowns I will not fear;
In darkest night I’ll raise my song,
And roll the glorious strains along. [Chorus]

5 I’ll praise Thee in a lofty strain,
I’ll praise Thee in a sweet refrain;
I’ll praise Thee more than tongue can tell,
For Thou art doing all things well. [Chorus]

6 I’ll praise Thee with my present breath,
I’ll praise Thee in the hour of death;
I’ll praise Thee as I mount above,
I’ll praise Thee in the realms of love. [Chorus]
