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

Our faith is in the Christ who walks

Representative Text

1 Our faith is in the Christ who walks
With men today, in street and mart;
The constant friend who thinks and talks
With those who seek him with the heart.

2 His gospel calls for living men,
With singing blood and minds alert;
Strong men, who fall to rise again,
Who strive and bleed, with courage girt.

3 We serve no God whose work is done,
Who rests within his firmament;
Our God, his labors but begun,
Toils evermore, with power unspent.

4 God was and is and e'er shall be;
Christ lived and loved— and loves us still;
And man goes forward, proud and free,
God's present purpose to fulfill.

Amen.
