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 I’ve been redeemed thro’ Jesus’ precious blood,
My sinful soul is reconciled to God;
Washed white as snow, my thankful song I sing,
Giving all praise unto my Lord, my King.

I’ve been redeemed, all glory to his name!
Jesus has saved me thro’ his own wondrous grace;
Here I will sing, until the time shall come
When over yonder I’ll meet him face to face.

2 I’ve been redeemed! My soul shall mount above
Earth’s sinful life to dwell with him I love,
Who, by his death upon the cruel tree,
Purchased my pardon there and set me free. [Refrain]

3 I’ve been redeemed, and I shall see his face,
Singing the song, “He saved me by his grace.”
O blessed thought! For e’er with him to stay,
Ever with friends I love to dwell for aye. [Refrain]

4 I’ve been redeemed; I’m sure to reach that home
Jesus prepared, from thence no more to roam.
My ransomed soul shall rise on wings of love,
Seeking a home eternal, built above. [Refrain]
