Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

115. How splendid shines the morning star

How splendid shines the morning star,
God's gracious light from darkness far
The root of Jesse blessed.
Thou David's son of Jacob's stem,
My bridegroom, king, and wondrous Lamb,
Thou hast my heart possessed.
Sweetly, friendly, O thou handsome, precious ransom
Full of graces, set and kept in heavenly places.
