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.

Representative Text

1 Above this earthly home of ours,
Of chilling winds, and fading flowers,
There is a home all bright and fair,
And all our hopes are centered there.

Refrain:
Oh happy home, oh mansions blest,
Where all God’s weary ones may rest;
For in that bright unclouded day,
Our God shall wipe all tears away.

2 There we shall meet the loved and lost,
Who over death’s dark river crossed;
There we shall see our Savior’s face,
And praise the wonders of His grace. [Refrain]

3 Here we may suffer grief and pain,
And tears may flow like falling rain;
But there where shines eternal day
God’s hand shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]
