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 O for the mighty rising wind
That filled the sacred place,
Where thousands in a single day
Were brought from sin to grace.
We long to rise on wings of faith,
Beyond this finite world of care,
And catch the light within the vail
That shines eternal there.

2 From ev’ry vain and idle boast,
O Spirit, make us free!
Now lift our thoughts to brighter things
And fill our souls with Thee.
Come, Holy Ghost, with quick’ning pow’r,
In Christ, our loving Savior’s name;
Let perfect love and fervent zeal
Burst forth a living flame.
