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)

Be Strong and True

Representative Text

1 Be strong and valiant for the truth,
Resist the tempter’s luring pow’r;
Shun all the avenues of sin,
And trust in God each day and hour.

Refrain:
Be strong, and firmly trust,
In God through every test;
Be true, and fearless stand,
And with His grace and strength be blest.

2 Cast not away the Arm of Strength
To yield unto the tempting throng;
For God is always strong and true
To help and keep us from the wrong. [Refrain]

3 He is our Rock, our Tower high,
And to the meek He giveth grace;
A shield He is to them that trust,
The joy of those who seek His face. [Refrain]

4 He will forsake you not He says,
But ever in your hearts abide,
And make you lie in pastures green;
In paths of pleasantness He’ll guide. [Refrain]
