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

Borders, Boundaries, Walls and Fences

Full Text

1 Borders, bound'ries, walls and fences
One by one they'll disappear
All our so-called differences
These are things we do not fear

Don't talk about honor, don't talk about pride
Don't start waving flags, we won't pick a side
Don't threaten with spirits below or above
We're protected by science, protected by love

The world is our family, we're not afraid!
The world is our family, we're not afraid!
The world is our family, we're not afraid!
The world is our family, we're not afraid!

3 Don't talk about treason, the word is a lie
We're not ""them and us"", we're just "you and I"
In loving the world we're not leaving you
We hold out our hands, we want you to come too.

The world is our family, we're not afraid!
The world is our family, we're not afraid!
The world is our family, we're not afraid!
The world is our family, we're not afraid!
Walls and fences, differences, we are not afraid!
