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 the clouds of trouble gather
And the stormy waves roll high,
Walking on the tossing billows,
See, the blessed Lord draws nigh.

Jesus loveth you
With a love so true,
Ev’ry moment He will care for you;
He your steps will guide,
Walking at your side,
If you in His love abide.

2 From His fold if you should wander,
In a desert land to stray,
He will follow, gently calling,
Bring you back into His way. [Chorus]

3 Earthly friends may oft forsake you,
Dearest human love grow cold;
Love like His can never fail you
Nor the highest good withhold. [Chorus]

4 Sweetest peace from heav’n descending,
Now your troubled heart will fill
If you yield your heart to Jesus,
Trust in Him and do His will. [Chorus]
