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)

Press On

Representative Text

1 Press on, my brother, sister,
And face the deadly foe;
Through Jesus Christ we’ll conquer,
While trav’ling here below.

Refrain:
Press on, press on,
Says Christ, our loving Friend;
Press on, press on,
“I’m with thee to the end.”

2 Press on, and let thy failings
A blessing to thee prove;
No wave of care or sorrow
Thy trusting soul shall move. [Refrain]

3 Press on, though raging tempests
And fiery billows roll;
While crossing life’s rough rapids,
He’ll safely guide thy soul. [Refrain]

4 Press on, ’mid strong temptation,
Tell Satan he must flee;
In Jesus’ name resist him,
And vict’ry thine shall be. [Refrain]

5 Press on, forever trusting,
In faith believing, too;
In spite of doubt or feeling,
God’s word will take you through. [Refrain]

6 Press on to what’s before us,
Forgetting all the past;
The light of heav’n so glorious
Eternally shall last. [Refrain]
