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 Jesus, lead the way,
So we shall not stray;
From the path while here abiding,
But shall follow Thy safe guiding;
Lead us by the hand,
To that happy land.

2 Should our far be hard,
Be Thou our reward;
Should our days be very dreary,
And our burdens very weary;
Lead us by the hand,
To that happy land.

3 Should the tempter’s dart
Vex and wound our heart,
Then in all our woe and weakness,
Grant us patience, grant us meekness;
Lead us by the hand,
To that happy land.

4 Lord, Thy guidance lend,
Thro’ life to the end;
Should the way be smooth or trying,
Still will we to Thee be crying;
Lead us by the hand,
To that happy land.
