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

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.
