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

743. Christ for the World! We Sing

1 Christ for the world! we sing;
the world to Christ we bring,
with loving zeal--
the poor, and them that mourn,
the faint and overborne,
sinsick and sorrow-worn,
for Christ to heal.

2 Christ for the world! we sing;
the world to Christ we bring,
with fervent prayer--
the wayward and the lost,
by restless passions tossed,
redeemed at countless cost
from dark despair.

3 Christ for the world! we sing;
the world to Christ we bring,
with one accord--
with us the work to share,
with us reproach to dare,
with us the cross to bear,
for Christ our Lord.

4 Christ for the world! we sing;
the world to Christ we bring,
with joyful song--
the newborn souls, whose days,
reclaimed from error's ways,
inspired with hope and praise,
to Christ belong.
