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 Thy blessing is upon us,
O Lord of hosts most high,
We read it in the beauty
Of land and sea and sky;
We hear it in the music,
That Summer’s voices sing,
They tell the wondrous glory
Of our eternal King.

Before Thy throne in praise we bow,
Thy holy Name we sing,
Thy blessing rests upon us now,
Our Lord, our Maker and our King.

2 Thy blessing is upon us,
As in Thy house we meet,
Thy Name to sing with praises,
Thy gospel to repeat;
At this most blessed season,
By youthful voices sung,
Thy Name, with glad rejoicing,
Is heard from ev’ry tongue. [Refrain]

3 Thy blessing is upon us,
We feel Thy presence here,
The summer’s grateful tribute,
Proclaims Thee ever near;
Thy hand alone can give us,
The beauty and the light,
That fills the children’s service
With June-time’s glory bright. [Refrain]
