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 On this Holy Lord's day morning,
Master of the earth and sea;
Stand we in Thy sacred presence,
Hearts and souls athirst for Thee.

2 As we come around this table,
Emblematic of Thy death;
Fill, O fill us with thy Spirit,
Till in Thee our souls shall rest.

3 May this loaf and cup remind us
Of the sacrifice Thou made,
Bleeding, dying for transgression
That our sins on Thee be laid.

4 As we look to Thee, the Author
Of all hope and joy and peace,
May our loyal consecration
To Thee, never, never cease.

5 Grant us in this sacred service,
To behold God's love anew;
May the vision fill and thrill us,
Till Thy holy will we do.
