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 Awake, arise, behold the day,
The birthday of the Son of God!
Come, sinners, now no more delay,
But seek redemption in His blood.

2 Oh! what a condescending grace!
He left His Father’s throne above;
Came down to save the human race,
With bowels filled with endless love.

3 The heavenly angels, with the news,
Came to the shepherds for to tell:
This day is born among the Jews,
God’s Son, the Prince Immanuel.

4 Oh! how the shepherds did rejoice,
At the glad tidings of our king:
And straight they heard a joyful noise,
The choirs of heavenly angels sing;

5 All glory be to God on high,
Who pitied sinful men forlorn;
Peace be on earth, good will to men,
The Savior of the world is born.
