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 When the soul is oppressed by the heat of the day,
And the clouds of contention hang over the way;
When we faint ‘neath the burden He has called us to bear,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r.

Refrain:
The Lord answers pray’r, yes, the Lord answer pray’r;
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r.

2 When the sunshine of gladness is flooding the soul,
When the waves of temptation like sea-billows roll;
When the pathway is lost in the tumult of care,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r. [Refrain]

3 When the tempest is wildest and storm-winds are high,
When the waters are calms as the stars in the sky;
When our breaking hearts cry from the depths of despair,
There is joy in believing the Lord answers pray’r. [Refrain]
