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. Oh, let us be glad in our Savior and king,
No tongues ever had greater reason to sing;
Our hearts we will raise with our voices in song,
And give Him the praise, to whom praises belong.

Be glad, be glad,
Oh, let us be glad in our king;
Lift up happy voices and praise Him,
Till space with His praises shall ring.

2. His wonderful name makes our victory sure,
We share in His fame which shall ever endure;
On earth we’ve His Word and the gift of His love;
The joy of the Lord yet awaits us above. [Refrain]

3. We bless His dear name, thro’ smiles and thro’ tears,
His love all the same hath encompassed our years;
Oh, who could be sad when thus held in His care?
Come, let us be glad, and God’s goodness declare. [Refrain]
