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’s never a day so sunny
But a little cloud appears;
There’s never a life so happy
But has had its time of tears,
There’s never a life so happy,
But has had its time of tears.

Chorus:
Ah, ah,
Life’s burdens, true, are great;
But God will us deliver,
If patiently we wait;
And the angels will be nearer
To the soul that’s desolate.

2 There’s never a cup so pleasant
But has bitter with the sweet;
There’s never a path so rugged
That has not the print of feet,
There’s never a path so rugged,
That has not the print of feet. [Chorus]

3 There’s never a dream that’s happy
But the waking makes us sad;
There’s never a dream of sorrow
But the waking makes us glad,
There’s never a dream of sorrow,
But the waking makes us glad. [Chorus]

4 There’s never a way so narrow
But the entrance is made straight;
There’s always a guide to point us
To the little wicket gate,
There’s always a guide to point us
To the little wicket gate. [Chorus]
