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 In Christ let all the earth rejoice;
Praise His name, precious name;
And sing with grateful heart and voice
Of the name, blessed name of Jesus.

Praise His holy name, Jesus’ lowly name;
Far o’er land and sea the news proclaim;
From the realms of light
Angels came by night
With the blessed name of Jesus!

2 With saints and angels join to sing,
Praise His name, precious name;
The name of Christ, our heav’nly King;
Oh, how dear is the name of Jesus! [Chorus]

3 Let all below, let all above
Praise His name, precious name;
Our Savior is the King of love—
Oh, how sweet is the name of Jesus! [Chorus]
