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. P
Akve mi baptos vin laŭ la moro,
kiel Jesuon baptis Johan':
Signo de pento, kredodeklaro,
nasko-sigelo de la Kristan'.

2. K
Venu, kolombo, Dia Spirito,
brilu la akvo, tuŝu vi ĝin!
Ni el ĉielo aŭdu la voĉon:
"Jen mi vin amas, mia filin'!"

Venu, kolombo, Dia Spirito,
tuŝu la akvon per via bril'!
Ni el ĉielo aŭdu la voĉon:
"Jen mi vin amas, ho mia fil'!"

3. P
Ĉu vi deziras sekvi Jesuon,
Vivi laŭeble laŭ lia vort',
Ami la homojn, porti la krucon,
Morti, kaj vivi spite al mort'?

4. B
Jes, mi deziras sekvi Jesuon,
klare lin montri en mia mond',
enpraktikigi lian instruon,
jesi lin per tut-viva respond'.

5. P
Do en la nomo de nia Patro
...[Dume Pastranto]
...baptas Baptaton.]
kaj en la nomo de la Diid',
kaj nome de l' Spirito plej Sankta,
mi nun vin baptas laŭ Dia gvid'.

6. K
Ni vian bapton ĝoje atestas;
Gloras ni Dion, unu en tri;
Vian fratiĝon gaje ni festas:
Vin bonvenigas la eklezi'!

Notes: P = Priest, i.e. baptizer; K = Congregation; B = Baptismal candidate
