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, my Saviour dear,
Clasp Thou my hand in Thine;
When lonely is the way,
Oh, give me help divine!

Oh, lead me, my Saviour!
Oh, give me help divine!

2 Deeper the shadows grow,
Fiercer the threat’ning storm;
Lead me, my Saviour dear,
Oh, guard me till the morn! [Chorus]

3 If up the mountain high,
Or thro’ the valley low,
Or rough or smooth my path,
Oh, lead where’er I go! [Chorus]
