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.

Representative Text

1 Sing a song of triumph,
As we onward go;
Jesus shall be victor
Over ev’ry foe.
Satan shall be vanquished,
And from shore to shore
Jesus Christ shall reign as
King and Conqueror.

Our God is marching on to certain victory,
Let all the world His name adore;
An everlasting kingdom His shall surely be,
His reign from sea to sea, and shore to shore.
Our God is Marching on to certain victory,
The triumph son exultant sing;
His glorious name in ev’ry land shall honored be,
And all the world shall crown Him King.

2 Sing a song of triumph,
Crowning day is near;
In the clouds of glory
Christ shall soon appear,
Coming in like manner
As He went away,
And with joyful hearts we
Antedate the day. [Refrain]

3 Sing a song of triumph,
Swell it loud and long;
Right shall be victorious
Over ev’ry wrong.
Join the conqu’ring army,
Jesus leads the way;
Swiftly we are hast’ning
Tow’rd the crowning day. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
