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.
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.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CI
