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 Through thy all-atoning merit,
In thy holy name alone,
Weak and helpless, yet believing,
Lord, we come before thy throne.

Let thy blessing rest upon us,
Like the early morning dew;
From the well of thy salvation
May we draw and drink anew.

2 Hear the prayers that now are rising
On the wings of faith to thee;
Feed our souls that now are hungry
With the bread of life so free. [Refrain]

3 We are looking, waiting, longing,
For a deeper work within;
For a perfect consecration
Of our hearts from ev’ry sin. [Refrain]

4 May the grace be with us ever,
In thy mercy may we hide,
And, through all our journey homeward,
Be thou still our Shield and Guide. [Refrain]
