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 We love the good old Bible,
We love it more and more,
And ev’ry time we read it,
WE find a treasure store;
It stands the test of ages,
So wonderful, so true,
It tells a Saviour-story,
So old, yet ever new.

The Bible, the Bible,
We love the dear old Bible;
Our teacher it shall ever be,
The Bible, the Bible.

2 We love the good old Bible,
Which lights us on our way,
A lamp to guide us ever
With bright and cheering ray;
It is the word which conquers,
With power from on high,
The bread from heaven given,
Soul-hunger to supply. [Refrain]

3 We love the good old Bible,
For when our skies are drear,
Within its blessed pages
We find our hope and cheer;
Like jewels they are gleaming,
Those words of tender love
Which tell a Father’s goodness,
And point to joys above. [Refrain]
