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 Master of the world’s great harvest,
Whitened fields all round I see;
But the laborers seem wanting,
Here am I, send me, send me.

Here am I, send me,
Here am I, send me.

2 To the humble, simple duties,
All unnoticed tho’ they be;
To the sick, the poor, the dying,
Here am I, send me, send me. [Chorus]

3 In the highway, in the hedges,
Where the hireling would flee,
Where the sheep are torn and scattered,
Here am I, send me, send me. [Chorus]

4 Should the way be full of danger,
Full of sorrow tho’ it be,
Thou wilt help—in Thee relying,
Here am I, send me, send me. [Chorus]
