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 to my Shepherd King,
Saviour divine;
Glad notes of joy I sing,
No want is mine,
His gifts, a full supply,
Garden of delight,
Pastures green, water’s sheen,
Brighten all my night.

My cup, it runneth o’er,
Jesus fills with love;
Fully blest, soul at last,
Like heav’n above.

2 My soul is now restored
Thro’ Jesus’ pow’r,
My great triumphant Lord
Keeps me ev’ry hour.
He makes His rod my joy,
His staff so dear!
Paths of right, always bright,
Jesus ever near. [Refrain]

3 Here is a table spread,
Banquet of love;
Glad oil upon my head,
Poured from above;
Foes cannot now encroach,
Jesus stands on guard,
Vict’ry won, heav’n begun,
Love its own reward. [Refrain]

4 My days are shining bright;
Thro’ future time
Each added hour shall be,
Lord, wholly Thine.
Thy name, dear Shepherd Kind,
Stamped on my brow;
In Thee I’ll dwell, Thy love I’ll tell,
Sing hallelujah now! [Refrain]
