Because Hive Wallet shut down and I didn't export the private keys, I have no way to access my Bitcoins. Is there someway, given a passphrase, to find the private key?
Thanks in advance.
P.S I already tried bip32.org. It gave me incorrect addresses.

Might want to experiment with libbitcoin's command line interface called bitcoin explorer (bx). Instructions for using v3.0 bx commands used below are found here in the right pane.

Assuming there is no mnemonic password, and the associated public key is compressed, the associated BIP 32/39/44 m/44'/0'/0'/0/0 private key and address can be computed as follows:

1) % echo "artwork crowd need rent install fire draw escape moment myth strong belt chair quiz cinnamon lab park leopard bicycle empty harvest cream matter teach" | bx mnemonic-to-seed | bx hd-new -v 76066276 | bx hd-private -d -i 44 | bx hd-private -d -i 0 | bx hd-private -d -i 0 | bx hd-private -i 0 | bx hd-private -i 0 | bx hd-to-ec | sed 's/$/01/' | bx base58check-encode -v 128

Assuming there is no mnemonic password, and the associated public key is uncompressed, the associated m/44'/0'/0'/0/0 BIP 32/39/44 private key and address can be computed as follows:

When you say passphrase, are you talking about the 12 word seed phrase, or do you have a password protected encrypted wallet? If you still have the wallet backup (bitcoinkit.wallet) and have a password (not seed word list) that encrypted the private key(s), you can export your private key(s) with a command line tool I made. I ran into this same issue, and it worked for me. Have a look at https://github.com/JesseCorrington/bitcoinj-wallet-export
