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 ’Tis so sweet to know the Savior,
That dear friend so kind and true;
Sinner, won’t you serve and trust Him?
Tenderly He loveth you.

Won’t you love the precious Savior?
Won’t you on His grace depend?
He will cleanse you, He will save you,
He will keep you to the end.

2 Jesus is the friend of sinners,
He hath died to save your soul;
Now He offers free salvation,
On His love your burden roll. [Refrain]

3 Do not longer heed the tempter,
Who your every hope would mar;
You cannot yourself make better,
Come to Jesus as you are. [Refrain]

4 Life at best hath many trials;
Oh, you need a friend and guide;
Come today and simply trust Him;
Come, your all to Him confide. [Refrain]
