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.

(My Life Flows On In Endless Song)

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus sigter

Representative Text

1 Jesus, Jesus, Jesus sigter
Alt mit Hjertes Ønske til,
Og sig hermed stærkt forpligter,
At jeg vil, hvad Jesus vil.
Hjertet i ham glad og stil'
Raaber: Herre, som du vil!

2 Han den ene er og bliver,
Som jeg elsker idelig,
Jesus er det, som jeg giver,
Hvad han haver givet mig.
Har dit Blod slukt Vredens Ild,
O saa før mig, som du vil!

3 Synes noget mig at nytte,
Og det ei behager dig,
O saa lad det fra mig flytte,
Giv kun, hvad der tjener mig;
Intet andet paa mig spild,
Giv mig dig, og hvad du vil!

4 Og fuldfør din gode Vilje
I og ved meg Nat og Dag,
Saa skal ingen Nød mig skille
Fra at elske dit Behag;
Hjertet lægger dette til
Midt i Døden som du vil!

5 Jesus, det er mer end meget,
At jeg dig til Gave fik;
tag mit Hjerte som dit eget,
Sæt det i den rette Skik,
At jeg altid frist og mild
Raaber: Herre, som du vil!
