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.

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)

Author: Joseph Beaumont

Beaumont, Joseph, eldest son of Sir John Beaumont, was born March 3, 1615, educated at Westminster, and Peter House, Cambridge, and died Sept. 3, 1652. His Original Poems in English and Latin were published posthumously in 1749. In this work there is a fine poem on "Homo". This has been condensed into a hymn, beginning "As earth's pageant passes by." Consecration to God.) His Psyche (1st pub. 1647), together with selections from his Original Poems, &c., were reprinted in Dr. Grosart's Chertsey Worthies, 1877-80, in 2 volumes. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
