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 "Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
Oh, guilty tempest-tossed;
"Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
Or, sinner, thou art lost.
The waves are wildly dashing,
Thy boat is light and frail,
The lightnings sharp are flashing,
And fiercely sweeps the gale.

Refrain:
Then "up with thy hands to Jesus,"
Oh guilty tempest-tossed,
"Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
Or, sinner, thou art lost.

2 "Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
He walks upon the sea;
"Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
He stoopeth now for thee.
Say not thy hands are feeble,
Thy fingers can not cling;
His mighty grasp shall hold thee,
And sure salvation bring. [Refrain]

3 "Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
He hears thy piteous cry;
"Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
No other help is nigh.
Even now thy bark is sinking,
The billows o’er thee roll,
"Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
Oh, sinner, save thy soul. [Refrain]

4 "Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
He ruleth wind and wave;
"Up with thy hands to Jesus,"
His love now yearns to save.
Oh, if thou wilt but trust Him,
His help He’ll quickly give;
Haste, then, no longer doubting,
"Up with thy hands," and live. [Refrain]
