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 Det mere saligt er at give
End at modtag, siger Gud.
Hvad Trøst, at ei in mangel blive,
Men eie til at dele ud!
O stræbe med gudfrygtigt Hjerte,
At lindre næstens Sorg og Smerte.

2 Her om Guds Ord vi samles glade,
Og bud fra Himlen lyder klart.
Her vore Børn vi døbe lade,
Og faa ved Herrens Bord vor Part,
Ja Livets Balsam liflig flyder
Og himmelsk Trøst i Sjælen gyder.

3 Saa er det ikke med de Arme,
Hvis Sjælehunger stilles ei;
Som ei i Ordets ys og Varme
Kan finde til Guds Rige Vei;
Som efter Guds Ord tungt maa sukke
Og uden Tro sit Øie lukke.

4 Oplad, o Fader i det Høie,
Vort Hjerte for vor Næstes Nød,
Og lad os se med Aandens Øie,
At vi ham skylder Livets Brød!
Ei gjemme for os selv det Hele,
Men kjærligt med vor Næste dele.

5 Gud, skjænk din Menighed de Gaver,
Som trænges til dit Riges Værk!
Lad Hjertet op paa den, som haver;
Til  ædel Daad gjør Viljen stærk,
Saa Nogle vidne, Alle bære
Hverandres Byrder, dig til Ære!

6 Fra Verdens Hjørner Millioner
Af frelste Sjæle samles skal.
Da Israel med Jubeltoner
Samt Hedningernes Fyldes Tal
En evig Lovsang skal udtone
I Triumf for Gud Himmelthrone.
