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, Saviour, comfort me,
Draw thy weary child to thee;
Thou,—my Rock, my Strength, my All,—
Loving Saviour, hear my call.

Hear my call, oh, hear my call,
Let thy dews of mercy fall;
Thou,—my Rock, my Strength, my All,—
Loving Saviour, hear my call.

2 Consecrate this heart of mine
Thro’ thy precious blood divine;
Ever faithful may I be,
Only trusting, Lord, in thee. [Refrain]

3 When the stormy billows roll,
Let thy glory fill my soul,
Let the bow of promise then
Shed its welcome light again. [Refrain]

4 Leave me not, my life, my own,
In this dreary world alone;
Lead me gently by thy hand
To the golden summer land. [Refrain]
