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

Who Is My Mother, Who Is My Brother?

Author: Shirley Erena Murray Hymnal: Chalice Hymnal #486 (1995) Meter: 5.5.5.4 D Topics: Christian Community; God's Church Christian Community; God's Church Christian Community Lyrics: 1 Who is my mother, who is my brother? All those who gather round Jesus Christ: Spirit-blown people born from the gospel sit at the table, round Jesus Christ. 2 Differently abled, differently labeled widen the circle round Jesus Christ, crutches and stigmas, culture's enigmas, all come together round Jesus Christ. 3 Love will relate us -- color or status can't segregate us, round Jesus Christ: family failings, human derailings -- all are accepted, round Jesus Christ. 4 Bound by one vision, met for one mission we claim each other, round Jesus Christ: here is my mother, here is my brother, kindred in Spirit, through Jesus Christ.

Help Us Accept Each Other

Author: Fred Kaan Hymnal: Chalice Hymnal #487 (1995) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Topics: Christian Community; God's Church Christian Community; God's Church Christian Community Lyrics: 1 Help us accept each other as Christ accepted us; teach us as sister, brother, each person to embrace. Be present, Lord, among us and bring us to believe we are ourselves accepted and meant to love and live. 2 Teach us, O Lord, your lessons, as in our daily life we struggle to be human and search for hope and faith. Teach us to care for people, for all, not just for some, to love them as we find them or as they may become. 3 Let your acceptance change us, so that we may be moved in living situations to do the truth in love, to practice your acceptance until we know by heart the table of forgiveness and laughter's healing art. 4 Lord, for today's encounters with all who are in need, who hunger for acceptance, for righteousness and bread, we need new eyes for seeing, new hands for holding on; renew us with your Spirit; Lord, free us, make us one!

I Come with Joy

Author: Brian Wren Hymnal: Chalice Hymnal #420 (1995) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Topics: Christian Community First Line: I come with joy, a child of God Lyrics: 1 I come with joy, a child of God, forgiven, loved and free, the life of Jesus to recall, in love laid down for me, in love laid down for me. 2 I come with Christians far and near to find, as all are fed, the new community of love in Christ's communion bread, in Christ's communion bread. 3 As Christ breaks bread and bids us share, each proud division ends. The love that made us, makes us one, and strangers now are friends, and strangers now are friends. 4 The Spirit of the risen Christ, unseen, but ever near, is in such friendship better known, alive among us here, alive among us here. 5 Together met, together bound by all that God has done, we'll go with joy, to give the world, the love that makes us one, the love that makes us one.
