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 Who can tell the love of Jesus?
Love for you and me,
Higher than the highest heaven,
Deeper than the sea;
Bringing Him from brightest glory,
Down to Calv’ry’s woe,
That the sinner, lost and low,
Might salvation know.

Refrain:
Down, down, down to the uttermost depths,
His love will seek thee;
Down, down, down to the uttermost depths,
His arms can reach and save thee;
Love, love, boundless and wonderful love of Christ our Saviour,
Higher than the heavens,
Deeper, deeper than the sea.

2 Doubt no more the love of Jesus,
Nor His saving pow’r;
Let His mighty arms enfold thee,
Yield to Him this hour;
He is willing, He is able,
For His grace exceeds
All our longings, all our needs,
Earnest pray’r He heeds. [Refrain]

3 Come and prove the love of Jesus,
Tender, true and strong;
Let Him lift thee to the sunshine,
Fill thy soul with song;
He for thee is interceding,
Far beyond the sky;
Let Him bring thee, by and by,
To His home on high. [Refrain]
