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’re going home with Jesus,
Our Captain brave and strong;
With sword and armor bright
We gladly march along;
We’re marching home with Jesus,
The strife will soon be o’er;
Then in our Father’s kingdom
We’ll triumph evermore.

We’re marching home,
We’re marching home,
We’re marching home with Jesus,
With our palms of victory;
We’re marching home,
We’re marching home,
We’re marching on to glorious victory.

2 We’re marching home with Jesus;
Oh, sweet it is to know
That o’er life’s rugged road
He’ll ever with us go!
How surely we can trust Him
Throughout the darkest night!
In safety He will guard us
Until the morning light. [Chorus]

3 We’re marching home with Jesus;
We’ve nothing now to fear;
No sin or foe can harm
With Christ, our Savior, near;
We’re marching home with Jesus,
And joyfully each day
We’ll follow ever onward
Where He may lead the way. [Chorus]
