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 Show me thy ways, O Lord,
and teach thy paths to me;
guide thou my footsteps in thy truth,
teach me to follow thee.
For thou the very God of my salvation art;
anew each day I look to thee,
to make thine own my heart.

2 Thy tender mercies, Lord,
remember thou, I pray;
thy lovingkindnesses recall,
for from of old are they;
my youthful sins forget,
as mercy is with thee;
as thou art merciful and good,
O Lord, remember me.

3 The Lord is good indeed,
and faithful he abides;
he in the way of righeousness
repentant sinners guides.
He teaches humble souls
his justice to discern;
he leadeth humble souls that they
his way of life may learn.

4 All the Lord's ways arelove;
he faithful is and true
to those who keep his covenant,
his precepts' path pursue.
I wait for thee, O God;
to thee, O Lord, I call;
Redeemer be to Israel
from their distresses all.
