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 Angel voices breathing ever,
Songs of praise to God on high,
Thro’ the gates of light and glory,
Call us now from yonder sky.

Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ our Lord and king;
Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ our Lord and king.

2 O’er the lovely realm of nature
By her sparkling fountains clear,
Thro’ the forest and the valley,
Still the earnest call we hear. [Refrain]

3 When the morning in its beauty
Wakes the earth from sleep profound,
In the music of the song bird
We can hear the grateful sound. [Refrain]

4 In the whisper of the twilight,
When the zephyrs murmur low,
In the sighing of the leaflet,
We can hear where’er we go. [Refrain]

5 Come and worship our creator,
Him whose mercy we adore;
Come and worship our Redeemer,
Sing and praise forevermore. [Refrain]
