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.

(My Life Flows On In Endless Song)

As a little child

Representative Text

1 Thine anxious doubts and fears,
Tireed heart, forget them all
And, even as a little child,
Come at the Saviour's call.

Come as a little child
Comes to the mother's breast;
Come as a little child,
To Jesus come and rest.

2 Don't try to understand
Salvation's wondrous scheme;
but simply trust the mighty love
That suffered to redeem. [Refrain]

3 Oh, is not this enough,
To know that Jesus died
To pay for you the debt of sin,
And calls you to His side? [Refrain]

4 Come as a little child
In simple, trusting love;
True, thou art weak, but He is strong
And ruleth all above. [Refrain]
