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 There are many little children who are sad
For a ray of gospel light they never had;
But the saddest of them all, it seems to me,
Must be those who dwell beyond the rolling sea.

Refrain:
Just beyond the rolling sea,
Just beyond the rolling sea;
Shall not someone go and tell the gospel story
Unto those who dwell beyond the rolling sea?

2 Oh, their idol worship gives them not a song,
And we never hear their laughter all day long,
For the love of Jesus has not set them free,
And they know Him not beyond the rolling sea. [Refrain]

3 I am glad that something each of us can do,
To assist the Chinese and the Hindus, too;
And the Japanese and others that may be
Without Jesus, just beyond the rolling sea. [Refrain]
