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 Praise to the Troubled

Representative Text

1 All praise to the troubled, the lost and confused
To all schizophrenics and those with the blues
All praise to the doubters and those who think free
Who open us up to a world that could be

Spin around, spin around, 'til we're no longer bound
Spin around, spin around, 'til we're way off the ground
All praise to the troubled who help us to see
And open us up to a world that could be

2 All praise to the outcasts, alone and adrift
Bipolars, autistics with their special gifts
All praise to the artists in whose fantasies
We learn that there's more to the world than we see. [Refrain]
