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.

Representative Text

1 Go forward, go forward, in Jesus’ conqu’ring name;
Go forward, go forward, your hearts with love aflame;
Before us are the hosts of sin,
Our Captain must the conflict win,
And now, above the battle’s din,
We hear His word: Go forward!

Go forward! go forward!
The order is today!
The Lord needs you, be strong and true,
And in His name go forward!

2 Go forward, go forward, this is His day of pow’r;
Go forward, go forward, this is His triumph hour;
Let ev’ry true man answer: Here!
Let courage triumph over fear,
For now a ringing call we hear,
The Captain’s call: Go forward: [Refrain]

3 Go forward, go forward, where’er His colors fly;
Go forward, go forward, to dare and do, or die;
Along the far-flung battle line
We see our Captain’s colors shine,
Our strength is needed, yours and mine;
The call today is: Forward! [Refrain]
