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's a land that is beaming with gladness,
There's a home we are longing to see;
Though the heart may be heavy with sadness,
Yet we know there are bright joys to be.

In that home, Eden home,
In that home, Eden home,
O the weary shall sigh nevermore,
In that home, Eden home,
In that home, Eden home,
We shall meet to be parted no more.

2 O the loved and the dear ones shall meet us,
We shall walk there with them by our side;
And the angels all bright there shall greet us,
In our home by the fair, crystal tide. [Chorus]

3 In our dreams even now it is shining,
Yonder land, that is fairer than day;
And the hearts of the weary are pining
For the message that calls them away. [Chorus]

4 Not a memory of pain or of sorrow,
Shall be found in that sweet land of light;
O that fair and that joyful tomorrow,
It will bring neither shadows nor night. [Chorus]
