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.

(My Life Flows On In Endless Song)

All along life's rugged journey

Representative Text

1 All along life's rugged journey
I am trusting thee,
O my Saviour, blessed Saviour;
Thou wilt keep me safe from falling,
lead me tenderly,
Jesus dear, my loving Saviour.

Refrain;
I am trusting, I am trusting,
Thou wilt keep me day by day:
I am trusting, I am trusting,
Thou wilt keep me all the way.

2 If my feet grow tired and weary,
and the way be long,
O my Saviour, blessed Saviour;
Thou wilt give me joy and comfort,
and wilt make me strong,
Jesus dear, my loving Saviour. [Refrain]

3 If the woes of life come o'er me,
in that hour be near,
O my Saviour, blessed Saviour;
Give me faith unto the victory,
till my soul with cheer,
Jesus dear, my loving Saviour. [Refrain]

4 I am trusting, working, waiting
as the end draws nigh.
O my Saviour, blessed Saviour;
And by faith I see the glories
of the home on high,
Jesus dear, my loving Saviour. [Refrain]
