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 Some one has strayed from the fold away
Can it be you?
Can it be You?
Some one has erred from the narrow way,
Can it be you?
Can it be you?

Refrain:
Come back while Jesus is calling,
His pow’r can keep you from falling;
Some one has strayed from the fold away,
Can it be you?
Can it be you?

2 Some one is treading the paths of sin,
Can it be you?
Can it be you?
Some one is living the self life within,
Can it be you?
Can it be you? [Refrain]

3 Come one is grieving the Lord above,
Can it be you?
Can it be you?
Some one refuses His wondrous love,
Can it be you?
Can it be you? [Refrain]
