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’m going now to Jesus,
I’ve heard His gracious call;
I’ll go tho’ faint and weary,
And at His feet I’ll fall.

I’m glad that He has bid me
Come unto Him and rest;
I know He will receive me,
And make me truly blest.

2 I’m going now to Jesus,
No more will slight His grace;
I’ll go, and with true sorrow,
Will seek His loving face. [Refrain]

3 I’m going now to Jesus,
I cannot longer wait;
I’ll go and seek His mercy,
For soon ‘twill be too late. [Refrain]
