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 Whosoever will come to me,—
Wonderful words of Jesus!—
Shall not perish, but saved shall be;—
Wonderful words of Jesus!

Refrain:
Whosoever will now believe,
Whosoever will Christ receive,
Whosoever will look, shall live;—
Wonderful words of Jesus!

2 Whosoever! O there I cling,
Trusting alone in Jesus;
There my comfort and help I bring,
Trusting alone in Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Whosoever athirst may be,
Come with thy heart to Jesus;
Drink the water of life so free,
Come with thy heart to Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Whosoever will faithful prove,
Doing the will of Jesus,
Life eternal shall reap above,
Hid in the life of Jesus. [Refrain]
