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 One in whom my soul doth rest,
There’s One who always knows what’s best,
An ever present, welcome Guest,
My blessed Lord, I love Him.

I love Him! O, I love Him!
My blessed Lord, I love Him;
Like music in my ears, His name,
My blessed Lord, I love Him.

2 There’s One who giveth joy and peace,
There’s One whose love doth never cease,
He doth the captive soul release,
My blessed Lord, I love Him. [Refrain]

3 There’s One who ever standeth near,
There’s One who all my way doth cheer,
In danger’s hour He calms my fear,
My blessed Lord, I love Him. [Refrain]

4 There’s One whom I soon will dwell,
When time hath tolled life’s parting knell,
His praise in glory I shall swell,
My blessed Lord, I love Him. [Refrain]
