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 my heart shall not forget the golden hour,
When the Holy Spirit like a cleansing show’r,
Fell upon my heart and took complete control,
Then His glory filled and thrilled my ransomed soul.

Refrain:
When the blessed words of promise I believed,
Then the fulness of the blessing I received,
And the Holy Spirit came,
Like a burning, cleansing flame,
When the fulness of the blessing I received.

2 When without reserve I consecrated all,
When I waited for the pow’r from heav’n to fall,
Just the moment that the promise I believed,
Then the fulness of the blessing I received. [Refrain]

3 As I walk and talk with Jesus ev’ry day,
He is keeping and sustaining all the way;
Fully yielded to His blessed will divine,
O the fulness of the blessing still is mine! [Refrain]
