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)

Will You Meet Him There Tonight?

Representative Text

1 If your soul is seeking rest,
And you’re longing to be blessed,
If you wrestle with the Lord with all your might;
Like one in the days of old,
He will surely bless your soul,
If you’ll meet Him at the altar tonight.

Refrain:
Will you meet Him there tonight?
Will you meet Him there tonight?
Will you meet Him at the altar tonight?
There we’ll wrestle, weep, and pray,
Till the breaking of the day;
Will you meet Him at the altar tonight?

2 Jesus at the altar waits,
Like a porter at the gates,
There to bless the waiting soul with heav’nly light;
You may have your sins forgiv’n,
And your name enrolled in heav’n,
If you’ll meet Him at the altar tonight. [Refrain]

3 Oh, how sweet the joy and peace
Of the soul that finds release
At the altar, where the darkness turns to light;
You may have your soul’s desire,
And a touch of heaven’s fire,
If you’ll meet Him at the altar tonight. [Refrain]
