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 Weary one, oppressed with care,
Wouldst thou from these trials flee?
Courage take, look up, be strong,
Step by step He leadeth thee.

Step by step, step by step,
Step by step He leadeth thee;
Step by step, step by step,
So thy Father leadeth thee.

2 Fear not, as a trembling child,
Dangers that may never be;
Only hold thy Father’s hand,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]

3 Troubles that like mountains seem
Melt away like mist at sea;
Trust the everlasting arm,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]

4 When the setting sun of life
Gilds with beauty mount and lea,
Passing to the spirit-land,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]
