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 Joyfully now our songs are resounding,
As to our Savior each heart a tribute brings;
Sweetly the echoes too, are rebounding,
Echoes of praises unto the King of Kings.

He is Lord of all,
And He alone is worthy of our adoration!
We His name extol, For He it was who gave His life for our salvation;
Wonderful His love!
And with our song we will repeat the blessed story,
Till in Heav’n above
With the redeemed of earth we give to Him the glory.

2 Strangely He wro’t the Father’s commission;
Teaching and preaching the Word in Galilee;
Bearing the scorn of lowly position,
That from the burden of sin we might be free.

Blessed be His name,
His glory shall endure, and He shall reign forever!
Unto us He came
The yoke of sin to bear, the bonds of death to sever;
Loud hosannas sing!
Hosanna to the Son of David, the victorious!
Crown Him, crown Him King,
And make His praise thro’out the earth forever glorious!
