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. Bells are ringing, children singing,
Joyous music fills the air;
Children’s day to all is bringing,
From the Savior, blessings rare.

Refrain
Praise Him, praise Him, all creation,
Ceaseless praise to Him outpour;
Fill the skies with jubilation;
Praise the Lord forevermore.

2. Gather ’round Him, young and hoary,
Praise Him for this day of days;
Spread abroad His matchless glory,
Sing with heart and voice His praise. [Refrain]

3. Lay your gifts of love before Him;
Children, sit ye at His feet;
Let your happy soul adore Him—
Christ whose love gives joy complete. [Refrain]
