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.

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, in whose name I pray,
Thou the life, the Truth, the Way;
At the cross of Calvary,
Is there Room for me?

Refrain:
Is there Room for me?
Is there Room for me?
Saviour, on thy loving breast
Let me sweetly rest.

2 At the sprinkled mercy-seat
Let me find acceptance sweet;
Thousands there for refuge flee;
Is there Room for me? [Refrain]

3 Many in thy life below,
Sought thee, pressed by want or woe;
Many now are seeking thee;
Is there Room for me? [Refrain]

4 In that city built on high,
Far beyond this changeful sky,
Loved ones now thy beauty see;
Is there Room for me? [Refrain]
