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 We have a home eternal,
A house not made with hands;
Upon the Rock of Ages
Its sure foundation stands.
Our faith, from Pisgah’s mountain,
Can see its portals fair.
O blessed home eternal!
Praise God, we’ll soon be there!

A few more toils and trials,
A few more storms to bear,
And all will then be over.
Praise God, we’ll soon be there!

2 We have a home eternal,
A home with splendor bright,
Where Jesus reigns triumphant
And Jesus is the light,
Along the crystal river,
The Tree of Life so fair,
Its golden fruit is waving:
Praise God, we’ll soon be there! [Refrain]

3 That home our Lord has purchased;
His blood the price has paid;
And numbers without number,
In spotless robes arrayed,
With shouts proclaim His mercy,
With shouts His love declare.
O joy beyond expressing!
Praise God, we’ll soon be there! [Refrain]
