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 spirit crieth out for Thee,
Thou living One who changeth not.
Earth’s noises flood and follow me
The while I try to call to Thee:
I call and find Thee not,
I call and find Thee not!

His work is done! the risen Lord
Speaks to His friends this parting word:
Lo! I am with you now, alway,
Lo! I am with you now, alway!

2 My soul is faint, my hope is gone,
Thou living One who gavest sight
To those born blind, I grope alone
With none to help or hear my moan;
Is there for me no light?
Is there for me no light! [Refrain]

3 Oh, purblind soul, the light is here!
Self’s shadows only blind thine eyes,
Nor hand is to thyself more near
Than He who spake that all might hear
His message from the skies,
His message from the skies. [Refrain]
