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)

Resound the glad Tidings

Representative Text

1 Awake the loud trumpet, the glad jubilee,
Proclaim it on triumph, the captives are free;
The day of redemption for sinners has come,
The ransomed of Zion return to their home.

Resound the glad tidings o’er land and o’er sea,
The Savior has conquered, his people are free;
Resound the glad tidings o’er land and o’er sea,
The Savior has conquered, his people are free.

2 Break forth into singing, be joyful, O earth,
Exalt the Redeemer, his goodness and worth;
And publish abroad his adorable name,
With song and with shouting his honors proclaim. [Refrain]

3 The Son hath delivered the wretched, oppressed,
And given the burdened and sorrowing rest;
His arm has salvation and victory wrought,
His blood and redemption and liberty bought. [Refrain]

4 With cymbals and songs and harp of sweet sound,
The fame and the glory of Christ spread around;
With gladness and triumph re-echo his praise,
Extol and adore him in jubilant lays. [Refrain]
