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 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me,
For my yoke is easy and my burden shall be light
You shall be made happy, from sin you’ll be free,
Following Jesus your pathway will be bright.

Refrain:
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me,
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light,
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me,
You shall find rest unto your souls.

2 Take my yoke upon you, for lighter far,
Every burden seemeth when I all your weakness share,
Though life’s cares annoy you, they never can mar,
The blessed Savior can lighten every care. [Refrain]

3 Take my yoke upon you, ‘twill be your aid,
When life’s cares and sorrows darkly gather ‘round your way,
Looking unto Jesus, you’ll not be dismayed,
And He will guide you to everlasting day. [Refrain]
