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 soul is rejoicing, the Saviour I know,
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day;
My sins that were scarlet are white as the snow,
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day.

Refrain:
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day,
Jesus leads me safely all the way;
And my soul would ever sing
Praises to my Lord and King;
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day.

2 Oh, great is the peace that to me now is giv’n,
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day;
It fills all my soul with the raptures of heav’n,
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day. [Refrain]

3 My life to His service I cheerfully give,
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day;
I trust Him each moment for power to live,
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day. [Refrain]

4 I long for the day when His face I shall see,
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day;
For then, He has promised, like Him I shall be,
Jesus saves and keeps me ev’ry day. [Refrain]
