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 No night have I with Jesus near,
No darkness hides the sunshine clear,
But all my life is filled with cheer,
With Jesus near, with Jesus near,
With Jesus near how sweet to know
My pathway he will flow’rs doth strew,
And calms my soul in joy and woe,
He loves me so, he loves me so.

2 He loves me now, oh, blessed thought,
He loved me when I knew him not,
And with his blood my pardon bought,
On Calvary he died for me;
Then, with such love my heart to cheer,
How can I doubt or have one fear,
Or ever think the days are drear
With Jesus near, with Jesus near.

3 I know not if across my way
May come some dark and evil day,
And thro’ the clouds I see no ray,
Yet I will trust, in Jesus trust,
I’ll trust him for the days to come,
My tongue may soon be cold and dumb,
But I’m assured he’ll take me home,
Then I’ll be blest, in heaven find rest.

Hall, Jane E., of Battleborough, Vermont, has in I. D. Sankey's Sacred Songs and Solos, 18S1, under the initials "J. E. H.," (1) "The love that Jesus had for me" (Love of Jesus); (2) "We shall have a new name in that land" (The New Name). The music in Sankey to these hymns is also by the same person. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
