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.

Notes: Take care that the timing is determined by the text and not by the apparent note values. Particularly when phrases have only one or two syllables under the initial reciting tone, do not stall but move immediately to the next word. In some of the cadences, some syllables do need to be stretched over two notes. To add variety, have a quartet sing in alternation with the congregation. The organ and/or choir can help to support the congregational singing and prevent the tempo from dragging.
