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.

1 Beautiful lilies,
White as the snow,
Speak to us softly
Of long ago;
Telling of Jesus,
Who from the grave
Rose all victorious,
Mighty to save.

Refrain:
Beautiful lilies,
White as the snow,
Speak to us softly
Of long ago;
Beautiful lilies,
Beautiful lilies,
Speak to us softly
Of long ago.

2 Lilies of Easter,
Blossoms of spring,
Wake from their slumber
Gladness to bring.
O they are ever
Heaven’s bright sign
Of life beyond us,
Endless, divine. [Refrain]

3 E’en as our Father
From winter’s night
Waketh the lilies
To summer’s light,
So His dear children
His love will keep,
Waking them softly
From death’s long sleep. [Refrain]
