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)

Only Believe in the promise

Representative Text

1 Jesus is mighty to save today;
Only believe in the promise,
Freely He’ll take all your sins away;
Only believe in the promise.

Refrain:
Only believe, Only believe,
Only believe in the promise;
Hear His sweet voice, the blessing receive
Only believe in the promise.

2 Jesus will give you the victor’s pow’r;
Only believe in the promise,
Looking to Him for your strength each hour,
Only believe in the promise. [Refrain]

3 Draw from the treasures of boundless grace;
Only believe in the promise,
Walk in the light of the Savior’s face,
Only believe in the promise. [Refrain]

4 Comfort and peace thro’ redeeming love;
Only believe in the promise,
Foretastes of wonderful joy above,
Only believe in the promise. [Refrain]
