Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

640. Christ for the World We Sing!

1 Christ for the world we sing!
The world to Christ we bring
with loving zeal;
the poor and them that mourn,
the faint and overborne,
sin-sick and sorrow-worn,
whom Christ does heal.

2 Christ for the world we sing!
The world to Christ we bring
with fervent prayer,
the wayward and the lost,
by restless passions tossed,
redeemed at countless cost
from dark despair.

3 Christ for the world we sing!
The world to Christ we bring
with one accord
with us the work to share,
with us reproach to dare,
with us the cross to bear
for Christ our Lord.

4 Christ for the world we sing!
The world to Christ we bring
with joyful song,
the new-born souls whose days,
reclaimed from error's ways,
inspired with hope and praise,
to Christ belong.
