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)

No Parking on the Highway

Representative Text

1 If you have started on the heav’nly road
Pay heed to every sign:
The One who paid the weighty debt you owed
Made it by His design,
And He will help you make the best of it,
Though raging storms may blow,
No matter what the way is, never quit—
Forever onward go!

Refrain:
There is no parking on the holiness highway,
Just keep straight and true on track;
Beware of going down a beckoning byway,
Many never make it back;
Though there are often many troublesome trials,
Jesus knows about your load,
And He will help you on the holiness highway—
It’s the one and only road.

2 When there are mountains on the road ahead
Just onward, upward climb;
Remember then the warning sign that said:
“No Parking Any Time”;
When all across the way it seems a wall,
Our God will make a way—
Just trust and listen for your Leader’s call;
Keep on without delay. [Refrain]

3 When come the cares of life to snare your soul,
Cast all upon the Lord;
Submit to God and give Him full control,
So follow at His word;
When worldly wisdom tries to tell you how
To travel on your way,
Just listen to the Father speaking now,
“My Son hear and obey.” [Refrain]
