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 Vi komme, Herre Jesus Krist,
Fordi du os har buden,
Thi ingen Synder, det er vist,
Kan være dig foruden;
Om denne dyre Nadvers Skat,
Din Kjærlighed til Minde sat,
Vi stikke os til Sæde.

2 O Jesus, gjør os selv bered,
Lad vorde os til Baade!
Ifør os din Retfærdighed
Ved din Aands Kraft og Naade!
Giv, vi som værdig' Gjæster maa
Forenes, saa med dig vi faa
Del i din Død til Livet!

3 Bliv du i os, at vi i dig
Maa indtil Enden blive,
Lad Synd og Død og Satans Svig
Os ikke fra dig rive!
Lad os ved dette Maaltids Mad
I Aanden blive mæt og glad,
Og eie alt Guds Rige!
