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.

Representative Text

1 Made of one blood with all on earth who dwell,
Born brothers of the near and far as well,
The children of one sacred Fatherhood,
And common heirs of universal good—
Grant us, who bow, O Lord, before Thy sovereign face,
To learn with Thee to love our world encircling race.

2 Our elder brother to a mortal frame
His God-like glory humbled and became
The fellow of the poor, the sick man’s aid,
Defense of weakling, finder of the strayed.
Grant us to be, O Lord, disciples of His death,
And breathe His love to men through every living breath.

3 Amidst the troubled, grieving, overborne,
Among the helpless, hopeless, and forlorn,
Engirt with ill and poverty and pain,
And bitter strife of greed for empty gain—
Give us, O Lord, the sight with Christly eyes to see
The hidden, soul-deep need of men for us and Thee.
