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.

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 To thee O blessed Savior,
My heart exulting springs,
Rejoicing in thy favor
Almighty King of kings;
I’ll celebrate thy glory
With all the saints above,
And tell the joyful story
Of thy redeeming love.

Refrain:
Fill all our hearts with gladness,
And every mouth with praise,
That we may swell the chorus
And loud the anthem raise,
To celebrate thy glory
With all the saints above,
And tell the joyful story
Of thy redeeming love.

2 Soon as the moon with roses
Bedecks the dewy east;
And when the sun reposes
Upon the ocean’s breast,
My voice in supplication
O Savior, thou shalt hear,
Grant me thy full salvation,
And to my heart draw near. [Refrain]

3 By thee, through life supported,
I pass the dangerous road,
With heavenly hosts escorted
Up to their bright abode;
There cast my crown before thee,
My toils and conflicts o’er,
And with the hosts angelic
Thy wondrous love adore. [Refrain]
