Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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


Let strife forever cease

Published in 28 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Let strife forever cease,
And envy quit the field,
Come join and live in love and peace,
And to the gospel yield.

2 Let bitter words no more,
Among the saints remain;
Let every member every hour,
Submit to Jesus' reign.

3 One Lord we have to fear,
One faith we all confess;
To the same baptism adhere,
And magnify free grace.

4 Then why should we contend,
For meat and drink and dress,
And crucify the Lord again,
And pierce his wounds afresh.

5 When bitter words arise,
Then Satan has his ends;
We wound the heart and hands of Christ,
Amidst his chosen friends.

6 No more we'll feel the flame,
Nor judge ourselves too wise;
But search with care to find the beam,
That lurks within our eyes.

7 Unto the world we prove,
That we disciples are;
They shall behold us walk in love,
And say the Lord is there.

8 Then we will live like those
Who now agree in love;
And when our eyes by death shall close,
We'll join with them above.
