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 whisper from the glory of the coming of the Lord!
Oh, the joy my heart is tasting as I rest upon His Word,
And what peace amid earth’s tumult doth this precious truth afford,—
The Lord is coming soon!

Glory, glory, Hallelujah!
Christ is coming! Hallelujah!
Glory, glory! Hallelujah!
The Lord is coming soon!

2 In the glory of His promise I am living day by day,
And the light of Heav’n is dawning on earth’s dreary, desert way,
While I wait that sweetest whisper, “Up, my child, and come away,”—
The Lord is coming soon! [Refrain]

3 What matters is the tumult of the world with sorrow rife?
For the conflict now is ending and the glorious Prince of Life
Will present His shining laurels to the victors o’er the strife,—
The Lord is coming soon! [Refrain]

4 There’s a glory on the mountains and a glory on the sea,
And the valleys now are glowing and the desert way can be
Just a pilgrimage to glory since He whispered it to me—
The Lord is coming soon! [Refrain]
