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 Across the eastern hilltops gleam
The first bright rays of dawn;
The sunlight dances in each beam,
Upon this Easter morn.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
The Lord is risen today;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
The Lord doth reign for aye.

2 The gates of death now stand ajar,
For Jesus, Lord and King,
No stone or seal His exit bar,
While men and angels sing: [Refrain]

3 Now all His agony is past,
His suffering and His pain,
With glorious victory at last,
Our Savior lives to reign. [Refrain]
