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 I want to see the shining angels,
Shining angels, shining angels.

I want to see the shining angels,
But I cannot until I make my peace with the Lord,
Then I'll give God my heart,
And I'll praise him while I live,
I'll praise him when I die,
In the New Jerusalem.

2 I want to see my blessed Jesus, etc.

3 I want to see the Golden City, etc.

4 I want to see the saints in glory, etc.

5 I want to meet my friends in heaven, etc.
