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.

Representative Text

1 Lifting the banner of Jesus,
On in his name we will go,
Scorning to do evil actions,
Ready to face ev’ry foe.

Lifting his banner, his glorious banner,
We march at command of the King;
Lifting his banner, his glorious banner,
Hosanna to Jesus we sing.

2 Trying to help one another,
Singing with joy on the way,
Knowing our Captain is near us,
Looking to him day by day. [Refrain]

3 Lifting the banner of Jesus,
Gladly we fall into line,
Keeping in step with the Savior,
Trusting his power divine. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
