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. Blessèd God, we bow in worship
May this house be filled with praise,
As we turn our eyes on Jesus
Dwell upon His earthly days.
With His blood He paid the ransom,
Broke our fetters, set us free,
Blessed Saviour, Thy salvation
Saves for all eternity.

2. Voices then we all lift heavenward
To the Lord of all Supreme
And like one of old in Scripture
In the temple in a dream.
Cherubim are there before Him,
Seraphim surround and sing,
O this wonder of all wonders
Jesus now is Lord and King.

3. Spread the word to all who love Him,
Raise an anthem to His name.
Jesus Christ the only Saviour
Yester-day, today the same.
Ground of peace and of salvation
O what grace and joy abound,
Grandest theme throughout the ages,
Praise the Lord, redemption ground.

4. Sing His praise and like a clarion,
Loud and long retain the sound.
For ‘tis through His great salvation,
That we are no longer bound.
Sin no more can have dominion,
In His death He set us free;
Shout this message to the nations,
Jesus Christ brings liberty.
