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.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

(My Life Flows On In Endless Song)

Kun ama zorgo paŝtas min

Representative Text

1. Kun ama zorgo paŝtas min
La ĉiam bona Dio;
Mi estas Lia, mia Li,
Kaj mankas ja nenio.

2. Sur ĉiamverdaj kampoj mi
Ripozon dolĉe ĝuas,
Kaj kie Li kondukas min,
Trankvilaj akvoj fluas.

3. Vaginte de la vojo for,
Mizere mi ekmortis;
Sed Li, serĉinte, trovis min,
Kaj hejmen ĝoje portis.

4. Eĉ ombran valon de la mort'
Trairos mi sentime;
Kunestas Vi, kaj per baston'
Fortigos min anime.

5. Vi kovras tablon antaŭ mi,
Plenigas la kalikon,
Oleon verŝas por la kap',
Hontigas malamikon.

6. En daŭro de la tuta viv'
Bezonos mi neniam;
Pro Difavoro restos mi
En Lia domo ĉiam.
