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)

Unto Thee Will I Cling

Representative Text

1 I will cling to the cross every hour,
While the surges of life round me roll,
For my Savior shall be my high tower,
He the refuge and joy of my soul.

Chorus:
Unto thee will I cling,
Thou wilt hold this poor heart which I bring;
Only safe is the way,
While I trust, while I cling every day.

2 I will come to thy sheltering side,
Where the healing in crimson doth flow,
I will dwell near the dear Crucified,
By whose blood I am made white as snow. [Chorus]

3 On the Rock that is higher than I
I will build while the waves round me roll,
I will trust in the arm that is nigh,
For the Lord is the strength of my soul. [Chorus]
