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

46. You've Called Us Together, O God, by Your Grace

You’ve called us together, O God, by your grace;
In grateful obedience, we’ve come to this place.
Our new common mission has only begun;
We’re learning the blessings of serving as one.

Refrain:
We are called! We are freed!
We are baptized as one.
In the Church, all we need
Can be found in your Son!
With Christ to unite us, and born from above,
We witness together to your wondrous love.

We’re one in the faith, and in creeds that we share,
In worship and sacraments, scripture and prayer.
We’re one in our seeking to follow Christ’s way,
In Spirit-led ministry, day after day.

Refrain

There’s much to rejoice in, yet much to be done;
While some are excluded, we can’t live as one.
May we as your churches uniting now see
That justice is needed for true unity.

Refrain
