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)

With Our Banner Waving

Representative Text

1 With our banner waving o’er us,
Led by the King victorious,
We’re marching to battle, for lo, the conflict has begun,
Clad in the armor of salvation,
In love and consecration
We’ll follow our Leader until the vict’ry’s won.

Marching on we go, a loyal band, to meet the foe,
Jesus leads the way that ends in everlasting day;
Forward, ever forward! on with strong and eager feet;
Onward, ever, ever onward, till the triumph is complete,
till the triumph is complete.

2 Loyal to the Prince of Glory,
We tell the wondrous story
Of grace, love and mercy that brought the Savior from above
To suffer death on Calv’ry’s mountain,
To open there a fountain
Wherein we are made pure by his redeeming love. [Chorus]

3 Strong and mighty to deliver,
Our Lord is King forever;
His word is our hope, and upon his holy name we call;
All nations of the earth before him
Shall yet bow and adore him,
Shall crown him, shall crown him, shall crown him Lord of all. [Chorus]
