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 Blessed songs of Christmas pealing,
Merrily, merrily;
Tidings unto earth revealing,
Blessed songs of Christmas morn!

Sing, O sing today,
Sing a Saviour born;
Merrily, merrily, cheerily, cheerily,
Sing, O sing this Christmas morn;
Sing, O sing today,
Hail, O hail your King;
Merrily, merrily,
Glad songs sing.

2 Blessed songs of Christmas calling,
Merrily, merrily;
Joyfully your cadence falling,
Blessed songs of Christmas morn. [Refrain]

3 Blessed songs the strain repeating,
Merrily, merrily;
Tunefully the glad day greeting,
Blessed songs of Christmas morn. [Refrain]
