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)

have peace with God, sweet peace at last

Representative Text

1 I have peace with God, sweet peace at last,
The dreary night of sin is past;
Secure I rest on Him who gave
His precious blood my soul to save.

I am justified by faith thro' His grace divine,
For I am His, and He is mine;
And forever shall my trust and rejoicing be,
His precious blood avails for me.

2 I have peace with God no words can tell,
My Saviour whispers all is well,
And this my song, my glad acclaim:
“O blessed be His holy name!” [Chorus]

3 From the love of Christ that fills my heart,
Not even death itself can part;
He keeps me now, and o'our by hour
Will keep me thru His wondrous pow’r. [Chorus]

4 With my anchor firm no storms I fear,
My haven and my home are near;
Beyond the clouds the place I see
That Jesus has prepared for me. [Chorus]
