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)

O I Love Him

Representative Text

O I love Him, O I love Him
because He first loved me, first loved me.

1 My Jesus came to earth from glory,
and now I love to tell His story
of His life and love for me.
He gave himself a ransom free,
Just to save someone like me.
That’s why I praise Him each and ev’ry day,
I praise Him each and ev’ry day. (refrain)

2 He said He’s coming back again;
Will we be free from all our sins
When Christ, our Lord returns?
I know He’s coming by and by
to take us to His home on high.
That’s why I praise Him each and ev’ry day,
I praise Him each and ev’ry day. (refrain)
