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)

Dwell on the mountain

Representative Text

1 Dwell on the mountain, ‘tis the privilege to know
The height of God’s love to his children below;
Why live in the valley when he calleth thee
To rise above the dark’ning clouds his light to see?

Dwell on the mountain where the view is clear,
Climb to its tow’ring peak and to thy Lord be near;
Haste from the valley so dark and drear,
And stand upon the mountain where the view is clear.

2 Dwell on the mountain, ‘tis the Lord that calleth thee
To rise ‘bove the world, from its sin to be free;
Arise to the call of God, O why delay,
Why labor on in darkness when his gift is day? [Refrain]

3 Dwell on the mountain, ‘tis Jehovah’s high command,
He bids thee go up and possess the goodly land;
There he now awaits us, we shall victors be,
And wear a heav’nly crown thro’out eternity. [Refrain]
