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.

Let Zion's sons and Levi's tribe

Let Zion's sons and Levi's tribe

Representative Text

1 Let Zion's sons and Levi's tribe
And Israel's army move;
Come, now, prepare to offer prayer,
While in the tented grove.

2 Leave all the busy cares of life,
All worldly things behind,
That you may gather strength of soul,
And fortify the mind.

3 For Jesus surely will be here,
To fire our souls with love;
And we shall find our hearts inclined
To love the tented grove.

4 By faith we claim thy promise, Lord,
Thy faithfulness to prove;
Draw near to us, thou sinner's friend,
While in our tented grove.

5 Oh, sacred ground, delightful place,
Where God appears to man!
Like Moses, we behold his face
With but a vail between.

6 But when we rise to paradise,
To worship God above,
Then happier ground we all shall find
Than in the tented grove.
