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)

Come, ye who are thirsty

Representative Text

1 Come, ye who are thirsty, Christ is at the well;
He will give you water all your thirst to quell;
Wait ye then no longer, He will welcome all;
Hasten to the fountain at the Savior’s call.

Fountain ever flowing, glad and free,
It was opened wide for you and me;
Drink its living waters, thirst no more,
But have a life and happiness forevermore.

2 Deep the well salvation, deep and free for you;
Healing are its waters, cleansing thro’ and thro’;
At the springing fountain drink and thirst no more,
Many have been saved by drinking here before. [Refrain]

3 Hasten to the waters lest you be too late;
Do not fail to enter mercy’s open gate;
Should you tarry longer yours may be the woe
Of the souls who heedless past the fountain go. [Refrain]
