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 Lord, when shall we mount up to thee
Upon the wings of grace,
And see thy bright and lilly white,
And ruddy, rosy face--

2 And be so near that we can hear
Thy ravishing sweet voice,
And talk with thee forever free
And in thy love rejoice.

3 And dwell above in flames of love,
Where heart and all shall melt--
Where love like streams and light like beams,
Through ages shall be felt.

4 Where thou art seen and I shall lean,
Forever on thy breast,
And dwell above in flames of love,
And be thy heav'nly guest.

5 Where heart and mind shall all be join'd
With thousands round thy throne,
And shall unite in sweet delight,
That now is much unknown.

6 In that bright place where we thy face
Shall see in glory shine,
And drink new wine fresh from the vine,
And be forever thine.

7 Amen, amen, the angels cry,
Salvation is his due,
And we to all eternity,
His praises shall renew.
