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)

Leb ich, so leb ich meinen Gott

Leb ich, so leb ich meinen Gott

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Leb ich, so leb ich meinem Gott;
sterb ich, so hört auf all mein Noth;
ich glaub, das mein Herr Jesus Christ
für all meine Sünd gestorben ist.

2 Wer an ihn glaubt, der stirbet nicht,
und kommt auch nimmer ins Gericht.
Drum ich zu sterben willig bin,
absterben ist meine bester G'winn.

3 Wenn Gottes Posaun wird angehn
am jüngsten Tag, will ich aufstehn,
bei Christo sein in ewger Freud,
das helf die wahr Dreienigkeit!
