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.

Representative Text

1 Lover den Herre, hvis reddende Kjærlighed sender,
Efter Fortabte sit Budskab til Jorderigs Ender,
Kalder saa mild
Hver, som i Ørken for vild,
Bær ham paa Hærder og Hænder.

2 Lover den Herre, hvis lysende Kjærlighed gyder
Straaler af Lys i det Mulm, som fra Helved indbryder!
O, at dog hver
Menneske-Sjæl, du har kjær,
Frem i dit Dagskjær sig fryder!

3 Lover den Herre, hvis pleiende Kjærlighed dyrker
Haven han planted, og Grenene renser og styrker,
Sanker ind fler
Folk, som han ledige ser,
Aandelig Glæde udvirker!

4 Lover den Herre, hvis værnende Kjærlighed breder
Skjul over Sæden, som vokser, og Spirerne freder!
Ak, hør vor Røst!
Giv os en glædilig Host,
Om den, som Sæden bær, græder!

5 Lover den Herre, hvis evige Kjærlighed fremmer
Det, han begyndte, og sine Udvalgte ei gjemmer,
Mange fra Trang
Staar alt i Himlen med Sang;
Herrens Pauluner dem glemmer.

6 Lover den Herre Gud Fader, hans evige Naade!
Lover den Herre Guds Søn, som os frelste af Vaade!
Lover Guds Aand
Kysser hans ledende Haand!
Amen. Vor Herre det raade!
