Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

One Common Faith

Full Text

1 We are one in Christ, his name we bear,
From the bonds of sin set free,
Members all of his great church above,
Just one common faith have we.

Refrain:
All for Christ! banded firmly together,
Love our watchword e’er shall be;
All for Christ! true and loyal forever,
Just one command faith have we.

2 Tho’ we worship him in countless ways,
May our hearts united be;
To the same dear Lord our pray’rs ascend,
Just one command faith have we. [Refrain]

3 When we reach the home in glory land,
Join the song of victory;
We will share the love of God our King,
Just one command faith have we. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
