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.

Behold, he cometh with clouds

Representative Text

1 Behold, He cometh with clouds,
The King of kings to be;
And every eye His face shall see
Shine forth in dreadful majesty.

Behold, He cometh with clouds,
The Victor over sin;
Lift up your heads, O ye gates
And let the King come in;
Be lifted up, ye everlasting doors,
Now let His reign begin;
Wide open swing, and let the King
The King of glory in.

2 Behold, He cometh with clouds,
The Judge whom all must meet;
And they who pierced His hands and feet
Shall stand before His judgment seat. [Refrain]

3 Behold, He cometh with clouds,
All earthly pomp shall pale;
All kindreds of the earth shall wail,
And sinful men before Him quail. [Refrain]

4 Behold, He cometh with clouds,
His coming draweth near;
Come, now His voice of mercy hear—
Be ready when He shall appear. [Refrain]
