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 Whereas I once was blind, but now I see,
This I know,
This I know.
The Lord has shown His mercy unto me,
Unbarred my prison door and set me free;
My heart is full of joy as it can be.
This I know,
This I know.

2 The world that once was dark is full of light,
This I know,
This I know.
The day has come—away has rolled the night,
The “path f life” is clear unto my sight,
And all around is beautiful and bright.
This I know,
This I know.

3 By faith in Christ my sins are all forgiven,
This I know,
This I know.
The sea of death is passed, the Rock is riven,
I am a child of God, and heir of heaven,
My heart unto the Lord is fully given.
This I know,
This I know.

4 My blessed Saviour keeps me every hour,
This I know,
This I know.
Secure am I against the tempter’s power,
I fear not rolling waves nor storms that lower;
His holy word a “sword,” a “shield,” a “tower.”
This I know,
This I know.
