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 is a voice that’s soft and low,
Oft whisp’ring in my ear;
It is the Savior’s gentle voice,
My heart so loves to hear;
I learned to love it long ago,
When first I heard its call;
Its earnest pleading I obeyed,
And gave to him my all.

There is a voice so sweet,
Softly mine ear doth greet;
Jesus, my Savior, whis’ring his love
From that bright home above.

2 There is no sound for mortal ear
That can with it compare;
No angel harp hath such a chord,
‘Tis music rich and rare;
Whene’er I wait with breaking heart,
To listen for its sound,
It always comes to comfort me,
And binds up ev’ry wound. [Refrain]

3 O how it makes my heart rejoice,
To think of yon bright land,
Where I shall clearly hear his voice,
And feel his gentle hand!
‘Tis blest communion here below
Thro’ Faith’s imperfect ear;
But there where all perfection dwells,
His voice I’ll always hear. [Refrain]
