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 thy book, where glory bright
Shines with never-fading light,
Where thy saved thou wilt record,
Write my name, my name, O Lord.

Write my name in the book of life,
Lamb of God, write it there;
Where thy saved thou wilt record
Write my name, my name, O Lord.

2 In the book, whose pages tell
Who have tried to serve thee well,
O’er my name let mercy trace
Child of God, redeemed by grace. [Refrain]

3 In the book, where thou dost keep
Record still of years that sleep,
Let my name be written down,
Heir to life’s immortal crown. [Refrain]

4 O my Saviour, thou canst show
What I long so much to know:
Let my faith behold and see
That my life is hid with thee. [Refrain]
