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 All in an Easter garden,
before the break of day,
an angel came from heaven
and rolled the stone away.
When Jesus' friends came seeking,
with myrrh and spices rare,
they found the angels at the door,
but Jesus was not there.

2 All in an Easter garden,
where water lilies bloom,
the angels gave their message
beside an empty tomb:
'The Lord is here no longer,
come, see where once he lay;
the Lord of life is risen indeed,
for this is Easter day.'
