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 Praise God on the throne of his power,
For great and eternal he reigns!
Praise him from the valleys of earth,
And praise him from mountains and plains.

Praise him who liveth forever,
With glory enthroned in the sky;
Praise him, ye living creation,
While nature’s glad voices reply.

2 Praise God, O ye depths and ye heights!
Praise him, O ye winds of the sea!
Praise him, O ye clouds of the air,
For great and almighty is he. [Refrain]

3 Ye worlds, that, revolving afar,
Are yet but the work of his hands,
Give praise that, pursuing your course,
Ye follow eternal commands. [Refrain]

4 Praise God, O ye children of men,
Ye humble and holy of heart;
Take thou in creation’s great song
The noblest and worthiest part. [Refrain]

5 This earth that is mortal will fail,
But years everlasting are thine!
Praise God for this holiest gift,
This mercy, this blessing divine. [Refrain]
