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, we pray Thee, keep us day by day,
E’er close beside Thee in the narrow way,
Let us not wander in the paths of sin,
A crown of life eternal we would win.

Saviour, we pray Thee,
Saviour, we pray Thee,
Keep close beside us in the narrow way.

2 Help us to serve The with a purpose true,
Trusting in Thee for strength each day anew,
Grant that with power we may tell Thy love,
That stars may sparkle in our crown above. [Chorus]

3 O, keep us humble, knowing but Thy will,
With Thy good Spirit our whole being fill.
Leading and guiding till before Thy face
We’ll stand redeemed and glorified by grace. [Chorus]
