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 Ye are the temple of the Spirit,
Time it is thy Lord to glorify,
Keeping from all that might defile thee,
Wondrous dwelling of the Lord Most High.
Holy Spirit, pow’r divine,
Let Thy purity be mine,
I Thy dwelling place would be,
Let Thy glory rest on me.

2 Shadows of doubting sin and sorrow,
Sometimes over thee their darkness shed,
Waiting the Lord’s hosts move not onward,
Till the cloud be lifted from thy head.
Let His smile upon thee rest,
Thou shall be supremely blest;
Joyful days to thee belong,
Shouts of praise and notes of song.

3 Into the gates oh bring thanksgiving,
Enter thou into His courts with praise,
So shall His kindness o’er thee hover,
So His favor shall prolong thy days.
Kings and priests to God art thou,
Humbly then in worship bow,
Prayer’s sweet incense daily bring,
Faith thy perfect offering.
