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)

Spirit of life divine

Author: Horace Westwood

Westwood, Rev. Horace, D.D. (Wakefield, Yorkshire, England, August 17, 1884--December 24, 1956, Clearwater, Florida). Emigrating to the United States, he served in the Methodist ministry for several years, and after 1910 served as minister in Unitarian churches in Youngstown, Ohio; Winnipeg, Canada; Toledo, Ohio; and extensively as a mission preacher. His hymn in one stanza, "Spirit of Truth, of Life, of Power" (1922) was included in Hymns of the Spirit (1937), and he privately printed a small collection, Some Hymns and Verses (n.d.), a few of which appeared in periodicals, but have not had wider use. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
