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

50. God, When You Called Our Church by Grace

God, when you called our church by grace,
This land was such a different place.
Yet what you spoke remains the same:
“I’ll be with you! Go in my name!”

Your promise is for everyone:
You call us here; your word is true!
We’ll be a faithful church for you!

Lord Jesus Christ, our cornerstone,
You meet us here; we’re not alone!
Through times of joy, through tears long-wept,
You are God’s love, God’s promise kept.

Your promise is for everyone:
You love us all, you make us new!
We’ll be a loving church for you!

O Holy Spirit, wind and flame,
You send us out in Jesus’ name.
You give us gifts that we may share
God’s love and justice everywhere.

Your promise is for everyone:
You give us gifts, and work to do!
We’ll be a serving church for you!
