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)

Spiritus sancti gratia

Spiritus sancti gratia

Representative Text

1 Spiritus sancti gratia,
Apolstolorum pectora
replevit sun gratia
donans linguarum genera.

2 Misit per mundi climata,
pari verbi potentia,
ut praedicarent variis
linguis omni creaturae.

3 Dicens eis: accipite
Spiritum Sanctum hodie,
ipse docebit omnia,
futura et praeterita.

4 Dicens eis: dum steteritis
coram regibus et principibus,
nolite cogitare, quomode,
aut quid loquamini.

5 Dabitur vobis illa hora,
honor virtus et gloria,
quae replet disideria,
virtute sed divina.

6 Laudemus consolatorem,
omniumque creatorem,
ipse amovit errorrem,
verm inducit vervorem.

7 Ergo nunc cum tripudio
benedicamus Domino,
laudetur sancta Trinitas,
Deo dicamus gratias
