SDA HYMNAL 194 – Sing We of the Modern City


Verse 1:
    Sing we of the modern city,
    Scene alike of joy and stress;
    Sing we of its nameless people
    In their urban wilderness.
    Into endless rows of houses
    Life is set a millionfold,
    Life expressed in human beings
    Daily born and growing old.

Verse 2:
    In the city full of people,
    World of speed and hectic days,
    In the ever-changing setting
    Of the latest trend and craze,
    Christ is present, and among us;
    In the crowd we see Him stand.
    In the bustle of the city
    Jesus Christ is every man.

Verse 3:
    God is not remote in heaven,
    But on earth to share our shame,
    Changing graph and mass and number
    Into persons with a name.
    Christ has shown, beyond statistics,
    Human life with glory crowned,
    By His timeless presence proving
    People matter, people count!
