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 Though a mighty foe assail thee,
Do not let thy courage fail thee.
Soldier, do not yield,
For God is on the Field.

God is on the field,
He will be thy shield
He can put thy foes to flight,
Only trust His promise true,
For God is on the field with you.

2 He can make thy darkness brighten,
He can make thy burden lighten,
Soldier, do not fear,
For God is very near. [Refrain]

3 When thy weakness seems appalling,
Hear the voice of Jesus calling,
“Loved one, lean on me,
For I have strength for thee.” [Refrain]
