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 Since to the Holiest none may enter in
Save those whom Jesus’ blood has cleans’d from sin—
The blood is life, and must for sin atone;
Christ is my life, my life in Christ alone.

2 So when life’s sun is sinking in the west,
I know that with the coming dawn comes rest;
And when the shadows show the close of day,
He who has conquer’d death shall light my way.

3 And as I’ve learnt on earth the rest He gives,
And here to live with Him who ever lives,
I know where He is, at my God’s right hand,
Must be my country and my Fatherland.

4 Thus may I prove in Christ my risen Lord
All that He’s promised in His written word—
My Life, my Way, my Home, my Rest above,
When sleep of death shall wake to endless love.
