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.

Naked as from the Earth we came

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #I.V (1766) Topics: Prosperity and Adversity Lyrics: 1 Naked, as from the Earth we came, And crept to Life at first, We to the Earth return again, And mingle with our Dust. 2 The dear Delights we here enjoy, And fondly call our own, Are but short Favours borrow'd Now, To be repaid Anon. 3 'Tis God that lifts our Comforts high, Or sinks them in the Grave, He gives, and (blessed by his Name) He takes but what he gave. 4 Peace, all our angry Passions, then Let each rebellious Sigh Be silent at his Sov'reign Will, And ev'ry Murmur die. 5 If smiling Mercy crown our Lives, Its Praises shall be spread, And we'll adore the Justice too That strikes our Comforts dead. Scripture: Job 1:21 Languages: English

Beside the Great Cathedrals

Author: Daniel Charles Damon Hymnal: New Hymns of Hope #25 Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Topics: Adversity Lyrics: 1 Beside the great cathedrals we huddle in the rain, or underneath the bridges till busy folks complain. We seek a little shelter, a coin to buy some bread, and Jesus waits here with us. He shares our stony bed. 2 He sings on city sidewalks, he sits on curbs alone, he holds a sign and listens for footsteps on the stone. He sings down by the river, a spiritual, a blues, with mothers and with fathers who pay no union dues. 3 Friend, have you seen him naked, in prison, or in pain, and have you seen him shivering with us out in the rain? Friend, have you seen him sleeping outside cathedral doors, and have you heard him singing with those the world ignores? 4 Sit down with us and listen to stories we can tell of death and resurrection, of heaven and of hell. Then strive to love the beggars who gather at your door, and see in us our Savior, the rabbi of the poor. Scripture: Matthew 25:31-46 Languages: English Tune Title: CHARTRES STREET

In Every Changing State of Mind

Author: Daniel Charles Damon Hymnal: New Hymns of Hope #29 Meter: 8.6.8.6 with refrain Topics: Adversity First Line: By grace we grasp a thread of hope Lyrics: Refrain: In every changing state of mind from ecstasy to deep despair, the Spirit beckons till we find the strength to pray, the will to care. 1 By grace we grasp a thread of hope and walk the shifting sand, until the thread becomes a rope held fast by Jesus' hand. [Refrain] 2 In barren places we will sing our dusty voices clear, and by our daily choices, bring God's healing presence near. [Refrain] 3 Yes, God is with is where we are, and knows our deepest fear; though seeming distant as a star, our God, in Christ, is here. [Refrain] Scripture: Revelation 22:17 Languages: English Tune Title: HOLLY
