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 a light shining down on my pathway today,
Causing darkness and shadows to flee;
And my soul doth rejoice as I walk in the way,
There’s a light shining down upon me.

There’s a light shining down, down from heaven on me,
There’s a light shines from heaven on me;
I will walk all my days in its wonderful rays,
There’s a light shines from heaven on me.

2 Once I wandered in darkness and groped in the night,
Unto Jesus for mercy I called;
He did hear my sad cry, and He opened my eyes,
And a light on my pathway did fall. [Refrain]

3 He will bless everyone who will unto Him come,
He will turn all their darkness to day;
Will you come to Him now and in lowliness bow,
That this light may shine down on your way? [Refrain]
