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.

389. This Is the Day the Lord Has Made

1 This is the day the Lord has made;
he calls the hours his own;
let heav'n rejoice, let earth be glad,
and praise surround the throne.

2 Today he rose and left the dead,
and Satan's empire fell;
today the saints his triumphs spread,
and all his wonders tell.

3 Hosanna to th'anointed King,
to David's holy Son!
Help us, O Lord; descend and bring
salvation from the throne.

4 Blest be the Lord, who comes to men
with messages of grace;
who comes in God his Father's name
to save our sinful race.

5 Hosanna in the highest strains
the church on earth can raise!
The highest heav'ns in which he reigns
shall give him nobler praise.
