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've a long time heard that there will be a judgment,
That there will be a judgment in that day.
O there will be a judgment in that day,
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?
O there will be a judgment in that day,
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?

2 I've a long time heard that the sun will be darkened,
That the sun will be darkened in that day.
O the sun will be darkened in that day.
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?
O the sun will be darkened in that day.
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?

3 I've a long time heard that the earth will be burning,
That the earth will be burning in that day.
O the earth will be burning in that day,
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?
O the earth will be burning in that day,
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
