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.

Anugerah Yang Mengherankan

Representative Text

1 Betapa heran manis bunyi Anugerah,
Yang selamatkan celaka seperti saya;
Sekali saya kesasar, tapi sekarang ketemu,
Buta, tapi sekarang melihat.

2 Itulah Anugerah yang mengajar hati saya takut,
Dan Anugerah bebaskan ketakutan saya;
Betapa mulia menghadap Anugerah,
Sewaktu saya pertama percaya.

3 Melalui banyak bahaya, banting tulang dan jerat,
Saya telah alami;
Kini, Anugerah itulah telah membawa saya selamat,
Dan Anugerah memimpin saya kerumah.

4 Tuhan telah berjanji baik kepada saya,
Perkataan-Nya harapan saya kukuh;
Ia akan jadi lindungan dan bagian saya,
Selama menahan hidup.

5 Yea, bilamana daging ini dan hati jatuh,
Dan hidup maut akan berhenti;
Saya akan berada didalam tudung,
Hidup keriangan dan damai.

6 Dunia akan segera larut seperti salju,
Matahari menahan sinarnya;
Tapi Tuhan Yang memanggil saya dibawah sini,
Untuk selamanya punya saya.

7 Apabila kita telah disana sepuluhribu tahun,
Terang menyinari seperti sinar matahari;
Tidak kurang hari kita menyanyi Pujian Tuhan,
Daripada sewaktu kita pertama mulai.

In 1754 he gave up the slave trade and, in association with William Wilberforce, eventually became an ardent abolitionist. After becoming a tide… Go to person page >
