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)

Somewhere Beyond the Cloud

Representative Text

1 Sometimes the storms are beating and skies are rob’d in gray,
The sunbeams hide their beauty nor cheer the dreary day;
But faith sees untold glory and lifts the soul that’s bow’d,
The sun is always shining somewhere, somewhere beyond the cloud.

Somewhere beyond the shadows, somewhere beyond the gloom
The birds are sweetly singing and blossoms waft perfume;
Lift up the voice in gladness and shout for joy aloud,
The sun is always shining somewhere, somewhere beyond the cloud.

2 There’s glory in the tempest there’s music in the rain,
The flowers bend beneath them but rise, refresh’d again,
Then seek the silver lining tho’ storms of grief enshroud,
The sun is always shining somewhere, somewhere beyond the cloud. [Refrain]

3 There’s comfort for the weary and hope for the oppress’d,
Each day the goal is nearer that living love has bless’d,
Sweet peace shall rule where terror has reign’d a monarch proud,
The sun is always shining somewhere, somewhere beyond the cloud. [Refrain]
