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.

1 All faded is the glowing light
That once from heaven shone,
When startled shepherds in the night

When shall the listeners say, "Hark!
They're singing -- He will come"?

Come even as Thou wilt;
But not anew to suffer pain,
And strive with human guilt.

5 O come again, Thou mighty King,
Let earth Thy glory see;
And let us hear the angels sing,
"He comes with victory."
