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 message sweet and clear,
Jesus saves!
Sweetest words that man can hear,
Jesus saves!
Tell the message far and wide,
Let it ring o’er wave and tide,
That for all the world he died,
Jesus saves!

Jesus saves, Jesus saves!
Hallelujah to his name, Jesus saves!
Praise the Lord, it reaches me
This salvation full and free,
And the cleansing stream I see,
Jesus saves!

2 Tell that sinful men may know
Jesus saves!
That a blessing he’ll bestow,
Jesus saves!
Let the joyful tidings ring
Of the risen Lord and King
And redemption’s story sing,
Jesus saves! [Refrain]

3 Have you heard the joyful sound
Jesus saves!
Does his grace in you abound?
Jesus saves!
O the joy of sins forgiv’n,
When the world from you is riv’n
How it makes of earth a heav’n,
Jesus saves! [Refrain]
