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 The Saviour has died to redeem you,
To pardon He shows you the way;
With tender compassion He loves you:
Oh, will you not love Him today?

Yield to Him now,
Oh, yield to Him now,
While still He is calling today!
Yield to Him now,
Oh, yield to Him now,
Oh, will you not yield while you may?

2 The Spirit is tenderly pleading,
He waits to give strength in the way;
He pleads with you now to be yielding:
Oh, will you not heed Him today? [Refrain]

3 Then hasten, for time is fast speeding,
There’s hope only promised today;
Tomorrow His grace may be ending:
Oh, will you not take Him today? [Refrain]

4 Yield now to the Saviour who loves you,
For how can you longer delay?
He patiently waits to receive you:
Oh, will you not trust Him today? [Refrain]
