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 Let us sing the blessed story,
Of the Saviour’s wondrous love,
How He left His throne in glory,
Came to earth from heav’n above;
Came to ransom fallen sinners,
Came to die for you and me,
Left His throne and crown and kingdom
For the cross of Calvary.

2 Was there ever king more kingly,
Was there ever love more true?
Oft the story bears repeating,
Old it is, yet ever new;
Man of sorrows and rejected,
Grief He bore so patiently,
Bore the cross, was wounded for us,
That from sin we might be free.

3 Oh! the wondrous love of Jesus,
How its light illumes our way,
And our lives grow daily brighter
Than the sun’s bright shining ray;
Then our hope will find fruition,
When our faith is turn’d to sight,
Face to face with Him who lov’d us,
We shall dwell in pure delight.
