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

Won the battle glorious!

Saved by him, the Living On,
Where he is, thou too shalt be,

Blend with theirs our songs of praise.
Glory to the eternal Son!
Glory to the Risen One!
