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)

When Satan tries to tempt me

Representative Text

1 When Satan tries to tempt me, and says it is in vain
To walk the narrow pathway, my goal I’ll never gain;
Before his darts can harm me, I hear a gentle call,
Which says that He who died to save me will not let me fall.

He will not let me fall,
No, He will not let me fall,
His gentle voice still guides me,
I hear His loving call.
He will not let me fall,
No, He will not let me fall,
I lean upon His promise,
For He will not let me fall.

2 A thousand snares and pitfalls my footsteps may surround,
An host encamp against me, and dangers fierce abound;
But none of these can harm me, for like a fiery wall,
His loving arms protect me and He will not let me fall. [Refrain]

3 And so with faith triumphant, tho’ tempted oft to sin,
I lean on Him who helps me, the victory to win;
And tho’ I am unworthy, His love supplies my all,
I know that I shall conquer, for He will not let me fall. [Refrain]
