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! shall I be among that throng
All clothed in robes of white,
And help to swell that glorious song
Of rapture and delight!

I shall, for I have been redeemed
With blood of worth untold,
The blood of Christ, the Lamb of God,
More precious far than gold.

2 Oh! shall I see my Savior’s face,
All radiant as the sun,
And dwell thro’ all eternity
With God’s Belovèd One? [Refrain]

3 Shall I in glory Christ behold,
Exalted king and Lord?
What rapture, yea, what bliss untold,
That moment will afford! [Refrain]

4 Oh! shall I gaze upon the wounds,
From whence hath flowed the blood
That cleansed my guilty, sinful heart,
And brought me nigh to God? [Refrain]

5 Oh! shall I ever, with the Lord―
As I retrace the past―
Praise Him for all His wondrous grace
To me from first to last? [Refrain]
