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 When I walk thro’ the valley of shadow and gloom,
When my soul is depressed, and to doubting gives room,
Still a promise I have that my path doth illume,—
My Savior is praying for me!

My Savior is praying for me!
My Savior is praying for me!
I will doubt not, nor fear, this my infinite cheer:
My Savior is praying for me!

2 Tho’ temptations are many, tho’ enemies rail,
Tho’ my sins rise in judgment and courage would fail,
An assurance I have that o’er all I’ll prevail,—
My Savior is praying for me! [Refrain]

3 I am sure that my Savior knows well all my needs,
That he urges my claims, my necessity pleads;
Shall the Father not hear when his Son intercedes?—
My Savior is praying for me! [Refrain]

4 Then rejoicing I’ll go, tho’ the way may seem long,
With my heart filled with love and my lips thrilled with song;
Tho’ all else may forsake me, in this I am strong,—
My Savior is praying for me! [Refrain]
