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)

Representative Text

1 Can you read a clear title to the mansions in the sky,
That the Lord your Redeemer has prepared for you on high?
Are your feet firmly anchored on the Rock that will not fail?
Is your hope sure and steadfast, does it look within the vale.

Refrain:
Praise the Lord, O my brother,
Praise the Lord, O my brother, you are safe from every fear;
Praise the Lord, O my brother,
Praise the Lord, O my brother, for a sky serene and clear.

2 Can you read a clear title to the robe of spotless white,
That shall clothe all the faithful when they pass the gates of life?
Is your lamp trimmed and burning, will your longing soul rejoice?
When at noon or at midnight you shall hear the Master’s voice. [Refrain]

3 Can you read a clear title to the crown of life and love
That awaits every victor in those blessed realms above?
Have your borne well your colors, have you tried to keep the faith?
Tho’ the grace that redeemed, you will triumph over death. [Refrain]
