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

266. Let Us Be United

1 Should not the children of one Father
Live together here in harmony?—
Bound by His love unto each other,
So that they ne’er can divided be.

Refrain:
He hath broken down the middle wall of partition,
And in Him hath made us one;
He hath saved us from the sin of strife and division,
Through the precious cleansing blood of His dear Son.

2 Hear Jesus praying for His people:
“Sanctify them that they may be one”;
Oh, let His prayer in us be answered,
And all His will in our hearts be done. [Refrain]

3 Sects and divisions shame our Savior,
Cause the world to scoff and disbelieve,
Send many precious souls to ruin,
Who might the grace of the Lord receive. [Refrain]

4 Let all contentions, names, and parties
Be forsaken for the truth alone;
Let all the ransomed be united,
And no division among them known. [Refrain]
