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 Oh, haste to the Saviour today!
He tenderly bids you to come;
He lovingly shows you the way,
And points to the heavenly home.
‘Tis sin that has blinded your sight,
That hides Him away from your view,
He only restores you to light—
The Saviour is calling for you!

2 Oh, haste to the Saviour today!
And bathe in the life-giving flood;
Come, cast all your doubting away,
And trust in the pow’r of His blood.
‘Tis sin that forbids you to hear,
But Jesus your will can renew;
Oh, come, while He’s waiting so near,
And tenderly calling for you!

3 Oh, haste to the Saviour today!
How sweetly He speaks in His word,
And bids you no longer delay,
But come to your dear, loving Lord.
Oh, hasten His sweet voice to hear,
And humbly before Him to bow,
While still He is waiting so near;—
For Jesus is calling you now!
