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)

In the glory

Representative Text

1 By and by we shall meet in the Glory,
And understand everything there;
We shall then see the King in His beauty,
And thank Him for all His kind care.

By and by we shall meet in the glory,
We’ll meet on that beautiful shore;
We shall then see the King in His beauty,
And dwell with the saints evermore.

2 We shall then know the beautiful meaning
Of things that so worried us here;
We shall spell out their wonderful “wherefore,”
In letters all radiant and clear. [Refrain]

3 Shall we wish that we never had murmured
When everything seemed to go wrong?
That we then had dispelled all delusions
With glad hallelujahs of song? [Refrain]
