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 Soldiers of Jesus, His cross we bear,
For truth and for right all trials dare;
Clad in the armor of faith we come,
We’re marching to Zion our home.

Stand for the right! this our watchword shall ring,
Valiant soldiers of a mighty King,
Right onward we’re pressing with sword and shield,
To error we never will yield.

2 Proudly our banner we bear on high,
The contest we seek is drawing nigh;
Jesus is leading our army on,
The victory soon will be won. [Chorus]

3 Ever upholding the cause we love,
Our trust in the pow’r of God above,
Looking to Jesus, our Saviour, King,
This chorus we joyfully sing. [Chorus]
