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.

1 In thee I trust, on thee I rest,
O Savior, dear
Redeemer blest,
No earthly friend, no brother knows,
My weariness, my wants, my woes.

In thee I trust,
On thee I rest,
O Savior, dear Redeemer blest,
On thee, on thee I rest.

2 Thy power, thy love, thy faithfulness,
With lip and life
I long to bless,
Thy faithfulness shall be my tower,
My sun thy love, my shield, thy power. [Refrain]

3 In darkest night, in fiercest fight,
In darkest night,
In fiercest fight,
With lip and life I long to bless
Thy power, thy love, thy faithfulness. [Refrain]
