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 - يسوعُ كلُّ المشتهى
كلُّ مُنَى الحياهْ
فهو خليلي والنجاهْ
وليس لي سواهْ
ولاؤه الصافي يدومْ
ودادُه يمحو الهمومْ
فيه الوطرْ - ينفي الكدرْ

2 - أَربَى على كلِّ المنى
ولاءُ ذا الخليلْ
لي منه فائقُ الهنا
والشرفُ الجزيلْ
الشمسُ منه والمطرْ
منه الغلال والثمرْ
خل العبادْ - رب جوادْ

3 - هل أُنكرُ البادي الشفيقْ
بالحب والحنانْ
في ضيق أحوالي يسوقْ
سلوى من الأحزانْ
أتبع خليَ الودودْ
إلى رُبَى دار الخلودْ
فهو الطريقْ - نهج وثيقْ

4 - هل مثلُهُ خِلٌّ غفورْ
كلا ولا أحدْ
علي مَنَّ بالسرورْ
وراحةِ الأبدْ
أضحى نصيبي في الحياهْ
وناصري عند الوفاهْ
ففي الحياهْ - وفي الوفاهْ
