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.

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 O Jesus, our Shepherd, how sweet is thy voice,
Its gentle tones we know;
And in thy dear presence we always rejoice,
Wherever thou leadest we go.

Chorus:
Jesus now is calling, calling, calling,
Jesus now is calling you and me;
Where the Shepherd leadeth, leadeth, leadeth,
Gladly we will follow, we'll follow thee.

2 In pastures of plenty his flock ever feeds,
And there our souls find rest;
To wells of salvation he daily leads,
Where waters are calm and so blest! [Chorus]

3 O blessed assurance, he knoweth his sheep,
And he his own will claim;
His flock from the snares of the foe he will keep,
For he calleth them all by name. [Chorus]

4 O Jesus, our Shepherd, so kind and so good,
For us thy life to give;
And save us from sin by thine own precious blood,
That henceforth for thee we may live [Chorus]
