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)

Representative Text

1 Lovet være Herren, som
Bore Sjæle vilde mætte
I sit Hus og Helligdom,
Og et Himmelbord anrette!
Herren være evig priset,
Som har os saa vel bespiset!

2 Nu, vor Gjerning her er endt,
Og Velsignelsen vi eie,
Er vort Sind til Hjemmet vendt,
Der vi vil paa Herrens veie
Efterleve, hvad vi lære,
Herrens Navn til Lov og Ære!

3 Følg saa med os ud og ind,
Hjertefromme Gud og Fader!
Hold ved Ordet fast vort Sind,
Saa vi aldrig dig forlader,
Men, naar Verdens Strid er omme,
Vi til dig i Himlen komme.
