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 life is a wearisome journey,
Iā€™m sick with the dust and the heat;
The rays of the sun beat upon me,
the briars are wounding my feet;
But the city to which I am going
Will more than my trials repay;
All the toils of the road will seem nothing
When I get to the end of the way.

Refrain:
All the toils of the road, toils of the road,
Jesus my Saviour will more than repay;
All the toils of the road will seem nothing
When I get to the end of the way.

2 I know there are hills to climb upward,
And oft I am sighing for rest;
But he who appoints me my pathway
Will lead me as seemeth him best;
For I know in his word he has promised
That strength he will give as my day;
All the toils of the road will seem nothing
When I get to the end of the way. [Refrain]

3 O when the last step has been taken,
And I to the City draw near;ā€”
When beautiful songs from the angels
Are wafted with joy to my ear;ā€”
O the rapture and bliss of that moment
Will more than my sorrow repay;
All the toils of the road will seem nothing
When I get to the end of the way. [Refrain]
