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.

1 When I am tempted or when I am tried,
No one can help like Jesus;
When cares are many or sorrows betide,
No one can help like Jesus;
Nobody knows or can just understand,
Like the dear Saviour who’s holding my hand,
He knows my weakness and helps me to stand,
No one can help like Jesus.

Refrain:
No one can help like Jesus,
No one can help like Him,
He only knows my sorrow and woes,
No one can help like Jesus.

2 When foes assail me and rough grows the way,
No one can help like Jesus;
When comes the promise, “I’m with you alway,”
No one can help like Jesus;
Yes, He is with me through sunshine and storm,
Ever will guide me and keep me from harm,
Daily I lean on His strong, loving arm,
No one can help like Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When peace is filling my soul like a psalm,
No one can help like Jesus;
When He has spoken the storm to a calm,
No one can help like Jesus;
O He can give such a wonderful peace,
Joyful thanksgivings which never shall cease,
How from my burdens He gave me release,
No one can help like Jesus. [Refrain]
