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. Happy the men who Jesus knows, Who humbly walk with God below, His secret voice attend. From all tumultuous passion free, Their Guide invisible they see, And commune with their Friend. 2. O that I thus on Christ reclined, His quiet, meet, and even mind Might with Himself possess: I want the faith which works by hope, Which calmly to its Lord looks up, And waits for perfect peace. 3. Jesus, on me the power bestow To work, or rest, stand still, or go, As Thy design I feel: Redeemed from nature's hurrying strife, I would not take one step in life Without a beck from Thee. 4. No longer rash to act, or speak, To think or judge, I only seek To know Thine utmost will. I set my God a time no more, The Kingdom when Thou wilt restore, And all Thy love reveal.
