Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

33. No Longer

No longer Jew or Greek, no longer slave or free—
In you, O Christ, we’re given wondrous unity.
Here in your church we learn that nothing can divide;
Here men and women, called by God, serve side by side.

No longer in your church should there be rich or poor—
You taught us kingdom values worth our struggling for.
Here some have wealth to give, and some, great faith to share.
The life we live together is an answered prayer.

No longer left or right, defending our own case—
O God, we’re sinners in your sight, in need of grace.
The common bond we know is Christ who sets us free;
In Christ we live and love and grow in unity.

O God, we look around and know (each one) our guilt;
By your own Spirit, now break down the walls we’ve built.
When we were all baptized, we died to our old ways;
A church diverse, yet one in Christ, we give you praise.
