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.

Blood of His Covenant

Representative Text

1. Blood of His Covenant, Sprinkles down upon us,
Cleanses our filthiness; washes from sin!
Pour down upon our hearts! Flood over our rescued souls!
Seal our great acquittal from all guilt within!

2. Gone are my stains of guilt; Gone my deep pollution;
Gone, gone to Calvary; lost in His grave!
There lies my wickedness, forever buried!
Spotless, I adore Him, for all that He gave!

3. Closed is the great abyss! Silent, my accuser!
Only Christ’s righteousness speaks now for me.
I feel His nail-scarred hand, tenderly washing all!
Loved in the Beloved, O how can this be?

4. Worship the mystery! Fall in mute amazement!
Murmur astonished praise there at His feet!
Now breaks my heart of stone; now comes His Spirit;
Now my heart of flesh is quickened to beat.
