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 ye people, come down to the judgment begun,
The standard uplifted is shining as the sun;
Who is able to stand, Heaven’s truth to endure?
Pass under the blood and be perfectly pure.

Refrain:
We have come to the deep vale of rest:
All calm and pure, our soul is fully blest.

2 Now the nations are summoned to appear before God,
To gather a remnant made pure in Jesus’ blood;
From the valley of judgment, where all truth is the test,
We enter decision’s sweet valley of rest. [Refrain]

3 Lo, what multitudes enter this sweet valley of choice,
All shouting their triumph with loud exulting voice;
From all sorrow and sighing He hath given release,
Whose coming is near in the valley of peace. [Refrain]

4 All is tranquil and holy in the valley of love,
Its streams are salvation, freely flowing from above;
Every foe is expired, and our weakness made strong,
And th’ vale of decision is vocal with song. [Refrain]
