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

195. [The day of resurrection]

3 Now let the heavens be joyful!
Let earth the song begin!
The round world keep triumph,
and all that is therein!
Let all things seen and unseen
in gladness blend,
for Christ the Lord hath risen,
our joy hath no end.

4 "Go make of all disciples,"
We welcome thy command.
"Lo, I am with you always."
We take thy guiding hand.
Thy task looms large before us;
we follow without fear,
thy power shall bring
God's kingdom here.

3 Lead on, O King eternal,
we follow not with fears,
like morning breaks gladness
wheree'er thy face appears.
Thy cross is lifted o'er us,
we journey in its light;
lead on, O God of might.
