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 In the morning when the mist has cleared away,
When I come unto the light of perfect day,
What will be my record when the judgment books unfold,
And the story of my life is told?

Refrain:
When the story of my life is told,
When the judgment leaves of life unfold,
Shall my Savior say, “Well done!”
Or shall He my name disown,
When the story of my life is told?

2 When within His sacred presence I shall stand,
How my soul shall crave a place at His right hand!
O shall life or death for me those record pages hold,
When the story of my life is told? [Refrain]

3 Day by day I form the record of the years;
All I say and do there faithfully appears;
By my fruits I shall be known, He promised me of old,
When the story of my life is told. [Refrain]
