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)

Representative Text

1 There never was any one like him,
The love of a soul to command;
Like Jesus, whose sympathy, boundless,
Can fully our hearts understand.

There never was any one like him,
Never, never, never,
There never was any one like him,
Like Jesus my Lord.

2 No other so cares for his dear ones,
No matter how feeble, how small;
There never was any one like him,
So patient and tender to all. [Refrain]

3 There’s no one with friendship so loyal,
Or friendship that reaches so far
As Jesus, whose love in all trial
Is love no estrangement can mar. [Refrain]

4 There never was any one like him!
I can not refuse him my love;
And I in his footsteps must follow
Until I may see him above. [Refrain]
