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 O to the LORD a joyful noise,
now make ye, all the earth;
2 With joyfulness JEHOVAH serve;
before Him come with mirth.
3 Know that the LORD is GOD; and He
made us without our aid:
His people and the sheep are we
in his rich pasture fed.

4 O enter then his gates with praise;
and in his courts proclaim
Your thankfulness to Him always,
and ever bless his name.
5 Because the LORD is ever good,
His mercy ever sure;
His truth has thro' all ages stood
and ever will endure.
