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, one sweet song to Thee,
Let me sing, let me sing;
Praise for all Thy grace to me,
Let me sing, oh, let me sing;
Thou hast granted my request,
Perfect peace, abiding rest,
Now in Thee supremely blest;
One sweet song, oh, let me sing.

Let me sing, oh let me sing
Like the bird on airy wing,
Unto Thee my Lord and King,
One sweet song , oh let me sing.

2 With the morning’s dewy light,
Let me sing, let me sing;
In the silent hush of night,
Let me sing, oh, let me sing;
Let me sing, for Thou art mine,
And I know that I am Thine;
All is well O bliss divine;
Let me sing, oh, let me sing. [Refrain]

3 In the vale, and on the hill,
Let me sing, let me sing;
By the cool and shady rill,
Let me sing, oh, let me sing;
Let me sing my love to Thee,
While on earth Thou leadest me,
Then through all eternity,
Let me sing, oh, let me sing. [Refrain]
