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)

We Hear, Lord, Your Promise

Representative Text

We hear, Lord, your promise: “My grace is sufficient!”
Those few simple words brought such comfort to Paul;
And though every thorn in the flesh may be different
We find in your message good news for us all.
Your strength is made perfect in times of our weakness,
When hardships assail us and pain comes along.
For you dwell within us and we learn your goodness—
And when we are weakest, in you we are strong.

Through all that we suffer, your grace is a blessing;
O Christ, you are with us to carry us through.
What hope you still offer when life is distressing!
You heal and forgive us, so we turn to you.
When pain is so great that we hardly can bear it,
We call on your name and we hear your love’s song;
You send us the comfort and peace of your Spirit,
And when we are weakest, in you we are strong.
