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)

1 ‘Tis the gospel message,
Hark! we hear it say,
Leave the world for Jesus,
Haste without delay;
Leave the world for Jesus,
Happy we shall be;
We are coming, gladly coming,
Lord to thee.

Refrain:
Coming home today,
Coming home today,
We are coming, gladly coming,
Coming, Lord, to thee;
Coming home today,
Coming home today,
We are coming, gladly coming,
Singing all the way.

2 Whosoever thirsteth,
Let them now draw near
To the waters flowing
Ever bright and clear,
To the living waters
Welcome all shall be:
We are coming, gladly coming,
Lord to thee. [Refrain]

3 Leave the world for Jesus,
Cling to him alone:
Oh, the tender mercy
Thro’ the Saviour shown;
From the yoke of bondage
He has made us free;
We are coming, gladly coming,
Lord to thee. [Refrain]
