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 Saviour, I want thy love to know,
That I in love may be like thee;
O let it now my heart o’erflow,
And live thy life in me!

I give my heart to thee,
Thy dwelling-place to be;
I want thee ever in my heart;
O live thy life in me!

2 I want thy spotless purity
For ever in my heart to be
A reflex of thy holiness;
O live thy life in me!

3 I want thy wisdom from above
That I thy perfect way may see;
To follow thee unblamable,
Live thou thy life in me.

4 I want thy constant presence, Lord,
Then e’en a dark adversity
Will be a blessing in disguise;
Live thou thy life in me.

5 Then to faith’s vision thou shalt be
Ever a bright reality,
Keeping my heart in purity,
Living thy life in me.
