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.

Representative Text

1 There’s a loving invitation in the Book of Life divine,
There’s a promise true repeated o’er and o’er;
“Come to me,” is Jesus’ call,
“Come to me, there’s hope for all,
He that cometh findeth life forevermore.”

Refrain:
Whoso cometh findeth life forevermore,
Evermore, evermore,
For the Saviour’s hand of love
Reaches down from heav’n above
With the gift of life forevermore.

2 There’s a loving call that echoes o’er the spaces of the years,
With a promise we have often heard before;
“Come to me,” is Jesus’ call,
“Come to me, there’s hope for all,
He that cometh findeth life forevermore.” [Refrain]

3 There’s a loving word that opens all the wealth of earthly joy,
All the treasure of eternity in story;
“Come to me,” is Jesus’ call,
“Come to me, there’s hope for all,
He that cometh findeth life forevermore.” [Refrain]
