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, Thou Lamb of God,
Save, save Thou me;
Troubled in spirit,
Lord, I bring to Thee
Only a broken heart,
Only a sigh;
Lord, in Thy Name I come,
Pass me not by.

2 Here at Thy Cross I bend,
Weeping, alone;
O for one look of Thine,
One loving tone;
Here, like a bruised reed,
Helpless I lie;
Lord, in Thy Name I come,
Pass me not by.

3 Though I am sinful now,
Weak and defiled,
Lord, I am penitent,
Make me Thy child;
Here at the fountain’s brink,
Fainting I lie;
Lord, in Thy Name I come,
Pass me not by.

4 Lord, Thou canst make me clean,
Heal Thou my soul;
Let me but touch Thy hand,
I shall be whole,
Thou wilt not leave me here,
Hopeless to die;
Lord, in Thy Name I come,
Pass me not by.

An industrialist and philanthropist, William H. Doane (b. Preston, CT, 1832; d. South Orange, NJ, 1915), was also a staunch supporter of evangelistic campaigns and a prolific writer of hymn tunes.
