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)

Stand by the Cross

Representative Text

1 Stand by the cross when the morning sun
Beams on your way so bright;
Stand by the cross when the shadows fall,
Soon we will triumph for God and right.

Refrain:
Stand by the cross, soldier, stand,
Vict’ry will come by and by;
Stand by the cross, soldier, stand,
And we’ll conquer though we die.

2 Stand by the cross till the day is done,
Firm to the end and true;
Trust when the battle is raging wild,
For there is waiting a crown for you. [Refrain]

3 Stand by the cross like a soldier strong,
Fearlessly face the foe;
Soon shall the army of night recede,
Back from the morning’s triumphant glow. [Refrain]

4 Stand by the cross till the Lord returns,
Faithful through life’s last test;
Soon we shall hear from His blessed lips,
“Lay down thy armor and be at rest.” [Refrain]
