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 Walking in the promises, the Word of God,
Trusting in the blood of Jesus;
Moving onward, upward, treading where He trod,
Trusting in the blood of Jesus.

Walking upward in the narrow way,
In God’s word I’m trusting ev’ry day,
Life is happy as I watch and pray,
I’m walking in the promises of God.

2 Walking in the promises of God on high,
Trusting in the blood of Jesus;
Promises will point me to the home on high,
Offered thro’ the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Walking in the promises, from doubting free,
Trusting in the blood of Jesus;
Claiming ev’ry promise that applies to me,
Trusting in the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Life lights up with glory when the sin-sick soul
(Trusting in the blood of Jesus;)
Claims the precious promises, and is made whole,
Trusting in the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]
