Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Amid The World's Bleak Wilderness

Full Text

1 Amid the world's bleak wilderness
A vineyard grows with promise green,
The planting of the Lord himself.

2 His love selected this terrain;
His vine with love he planted here
To bear the choicest fruit for him.

3 We are his branches, chosen, dear,
And though we feel the dresser's knife,
We are the objects of his care.

4 From him we draw the juice of life,
For him supply his winery
With fruit from which true joys derive.

5 Vine, keep what I was meant to be:
Your branch, with your rich life in me.
