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

Borders, Boundaries, Walls and Fences

Representative 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!
