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 Throne of eternal Love,
Refuge from care!
O what a precious thought,
Jesus is there;
Under His mighty wings,
Faith to His mercy clings,
While to my heart she brings
Sweet delight in prayer.

2 Throne of eternal Love,
There would I be;
There my Redeemer comes
Nearest to me;
Brightly His glories shine,
Sweetly His voice divine
Gives to this heart of mine
Sweet delight in prayer.

3 Throne of eternal Love,
Refuge from care!
There is my hiding-place,
Jesus is there;
Calmly my heart oppressed
Leans on His loving breast;
O what a blessed rest!
Sweet delight in prayer.
