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. My heart is clinging to Christ, my Savior,
He ever keeps me in His sweet favor;
The way grows brighter, my burdens lighter,
For Jesus is for evermore my Lord and king.

Refrain
My heart is clinging, my soul is singing,
Glad hallelujahs to my Savior’s name I bring;
I am abiding, in Him confiding;
For Jesus is for evermore my Lord and king.

2. When shadows gather, His grace receiving,
’Tis sweet to trust Him, His word believing;
My burdens bearing, my sorrows sharing,
For Jesus is for evermore my Lord and king. [Refrain]

3. In yonder mansions forever dwelling,
Thro’ endless ages the chorus swelling;
Ever in glory, I’ll sing the story,
For Jesus is for evermore my Lord and king. [Refrain]
