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)

The Lord is coming, let this be

Representative Text

1 The Lord is coming! let this be
The herald note of jubilee;
And when we meet, and when we part,
The salutation from the heart.

2 The Lord is coming! sound it forth,
From East to West, from South to North;
Speed on! speed on the tidings glad,
That none who love him may be sad.

3 The Lord is coming! saints, rejoice!
We soon shall hear his glorious voice,
Majestic, uttered from afar,
As on he hastes his conquering car.

4 The Lord is coming! vengeful, dire,
Are all his judgments and his ire,
And none can hope to escape his wrath,
Who walk not in the narrow path.
