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 Honor and dominion unto God our King,
Glory to our Lord divine,
He whose name the angel hosts exultant sing,
Where the stars immortal shine.

Honor and dominion evermore,
Glory to his name in song we bring;
Sing the hymns of praising o’er and o’er,
Honor and dominion to the King.

2 Honor and dominion to our holy Lord,
Glory to his wondrous name,
He whose might and wisdom is proclaimed abroad,
Now and thro’ all time the same. [Chorus]

3 Honor and dominion to the King of kings,
Glory to our God on high;
Full and free salvation to the world he brings,
Praise his name in earth and sky. [Chorus]
