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.

O Christian brethren, marvel not

O Christian brethren, marvel not

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Christian brethern marvel not!
What if the world hate you;
It is the christians share and lot,
Whilst here on earth below.

2 The world will ever love its ways,
That of unrighteousness!
The carnal mind can ne'er embrace
The ways of life and peace.

3 Those who have pass'd from death to life
Must needs expect to find,
Continual war, and constant strife,
With those of carnal mind.

4 The soul remains with sin defil'd!
Whilst in a carnal state--
And never will be reconciled
To bear the christians fate.

5 Where there is not a living faith,
The mind is not renew'd;
And still remains in sin and death,
And enmity with God.
