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 Send out the glad tidings o’er ocean and plain,
The gospel of gladness, the gospel of love;
Bid earth look with hope from her long night of pain,
For promise of morning breaks forth from above.

Send out the glad tidings,
Send out the glad tidings,
Send out the glad tidings o’er ocean and plain,
Christ cometh in glory, he cometh to reign!

2 Send out the glad tidings o’er land and o’er sea,
The message of pardon, the message of peace;
Say ye to the captive, from bondage be free,
Deliv’rance has come, and oppression shall cease. [Refrain]

3 Oh, haste with the message! delay no to tell,
For hearts bowed with sorrow are fainting to know
The story of Jesus, who loved them so well,—
He died to redeem them from sin and from woe. [Refrain]

4 Rejoice, oh! ye lands, your Redeemer is here!
The word of his power shall break every chain;
The night is far spent and the morning is near,
Joy comes with the morning, Christ cometh to reign! [Refrain]
