Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

60. Let's Stop Making Weapons

1 Suffering 'round the world, carnage and so much fear
Coming from something ugly, something that we make here
It's not our movies or veggies, or cars we proudly display
Or anything we are making in a ""Love Thy Neighbor"" way
We hide it cuz it's shameful, but we make them ev'ryday.

The world can have our movies, our veggies and our cars
But let's stop making weapons, 'cuz that's not who we are

2 Conflicts can be resolved, and in a healing way
Simply ask any teacher, they do it ev'ryday
Or ask the auto mechanic, the veggie farmer and son
And others that we look up to, who refuse to own a gun
A diff'rent way of thinking, but the thinking must get done . [Refrain]
