During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

249. Rose-Time, We Love Thee

1 Rose-time, we love thee—bright Summer days,
Brides carol sweetly
All through our ways;
Paradise visions sent from above,
From God the Father, whose name is love.

How we love the time of roses, roses, roses;
Summer comes again to greet us,
With its roses fair.

2 Rose-time, we love thee—best of the year;
Long have we waited,
Now art thou here!
Free are thy treasures, for one and all,
As heaven’s mantle o’er us doth fall. [Refrain]

3 Rose-time, we love thee—from God’s greet store
Cometh abundance,
Still there is more;
O’er land and ocean, where man is found,
Tell them of Jesus, let His praise sound. [Refrain]
