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

Let's Stop Making Weapons

Representative Text

1 Suffering 'round the world, carnage and so much fear
Coming from something ugly, something that we make here
It's not our movies or veggies, or cars we proudly display
Or anything we are making in a ""Love Thy Neighbor"" way
We hide it cuz it's shameful, but we make them ev'ryday.

The world can have our movies, our veggies and our cars
But let's stop making weapons, 'cuz that's not who we are

2 Conflicts can be resolved, and in a healing way
Simply ask any teacher, they do it ev'ryday
Or ask the auto mechanic, the veggie farmer and son
And others that we look up to, who refuse to own a gun
A diff'rent way of thinking, but the thinking must get done . [Refrain]
