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 for the Right

Stand for the right, the right will surely win

Author: A. H. Ackley
Tune: [Stand for the right, the right will surely win]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Stand for the right, the right will surely win;
Stand in His might and face the host of sin;
No flag of truce, all compromise disdain,
Faith is the victory and Christ must reign.

Stand for the right, for God is on our side;
Stand in His might, whatever may betide;
God cannot fail, His name shall all confess,
He is the King and Lord of Righteousness.

2 Stand for the right, let others fail and fall;
Stand in His might wherever He may call;
The voice of Jesus calls you to the height,
Face tow’rd the rising sun of pace and light. [Refrain]

3 Stand for the right, the recompense is sure;
Stand in His might, be upright, brave and pure;
Pray without ceasing, seal each tho’t with prayer,
Feed on His word and trust His loving care. [Refrain]
