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)

The king's praise

Representative Text

1 Unto the King of our salvation
Let praise arise with exultation;
His name above all other names shall be our joy and song.
Unworthy, yet his bounty feeds us;
Ungrateful, yet he gently leads us;
Rebellious, yet he guides and keep us all the way along.

With song we come before him,
And, grateful, our hearts adore him;
His praise, in love ascending,
From voices together blending,
Thro’out the world shall ring—
Hosanna to our King!
Rock, hill, and vale and mountain,
Sea, river, and brook and fountain,
Shall join in the mighty chorus
To him whose love supreme is o’er us,
Till earth, united, shall extol,
And crown him Lord of all.

2 His love and mercy never faileth;
His grace for ev’ry need availeth;
We in his everlasting arms of love in peace abide.
The cloud by day he shows before us,
The fire by night he kindles o’er us,
While at his word the mountains tremble, and the seas divide. [Refrain]

3 The way to life he hath appointed
Is thro’ the Lord, our Great Anointed;
Not one shall ever go astray who follows his command.
Hosanna to his name forever,
He will forsake, or leave us, never!
His word for ages hath endured, and shall forever stand. [Refrain]
