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

Auf dein Zukunft, Herr Jesu Christ
hoffen wir alle Stunden;
der jüngste Tag nicht fern mehr ist,
dran werden wir entbunden.
Hilf nur, daß wir fein wacker sein,
wenn du mit deinen Engelein
zu dem Gericht wirst kommen.
