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

1 Jesus came, the heavens adoring--
came with peace from realms on high,
Jesus came for our redemption,
humbly came on earth to die;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
came in deep humility.

2 Jesus comes to us in mercy
when our hearts are bowed with care;
Jesus comes in power, to answer
every earnest, heartfelt prayer:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
comes to save us from despair.

3 Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing--
all the past he now forgives;
Jesus comes to share his kingdom
with the sinners he receives:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Death is conquered: Jesus lives!

4 Jesus comes on clouds triumphant
when the heavens shall pass away;
Jesus comes again in glory--
let us then our homage pay,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
till the dawn of endless day.
