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 Will you give yourself to Jesus,
Ever more His child to be?
For He gave His life so precious,
Died upon the cross for Thee.

Refrain:
Will you give yourself to Jesus,
All His own to ever be?
Will you love and trust the Saviour?
For He died to make you free.

2 Will you give your voice to Jesus,
Speak and sing for Him alone?
‘Tis for you the voice of Jesus
Pleadeth now before the throne. [Refrain]

3 Will you give your hands to Jesus,
Works of love for Him to do?
His dear hands were sorely wounded,
On the cross were nailed for you. [Refrain]

4 Will you give your feet to Jesus?
Willing errands for Him go?
Of the Master’s feet were weary
As He trod the earth below. [Refrain]

5 All your love, your heart’s best service,
Will you give them glad and free?
All the riches of His Kingdom
Now He freely offers thee. [Refrain]
