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

One Common Faith

Representative 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.

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.
