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 Sing, O earth to the King most high,
For His mercy and love are eternal;
Chant His praise till the stars reply
With the saints in the kingdom supernal;
Sing ye nations, the King proclaim,
Christ, the Savior, extol and adore;
Over and over, repeat His name;
Praises increasing outpour.

Sing His praise,
Loud your anthems raise,
For our Lord once slain is alive again,
And He sits at the Father’s right hand;
He is King and will ever reign
His goodness and mercy endureth forever,
Oh, praise His name.

2 Laud His name with enraptured songs,
More than worthy is He of our praises,
Endless glory to Him belongs,
For the humble and fallen He raises;
He came down from His throne above,
Bled and died to redeem us from sin;
Over and over, extol His love,
Praise ye His glorious name. [Refrain]

3 Come ye people, before Him fall,
For in majesty none is above Him,
Priceless blessings He gives to all,
Who believe Him, and trust Him, and love Him;
Give your heart to this matchless King,
Who is saving and lifting the race;
Over and over, His praises sing,
Rest in the arms of His grace. [Refrain]
