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 Born in a manger, lowly and poor,
Willing the world’s dark frowns to endure;
Came the dear Lord, our Saviour to be,
Wonderful love for thee and me.

Refrain:
Wonderful love, wonderful love,
Wonderful love for thee and me;
Wonderful love, wonderful love,
Wonderful love for thee and me.

2 Tell of His love to those who are sad,
Bring them the news so wondrous and glad;
Tell them that Christ their helper would be,
Wonderful love for thee and me. [Refrain]

3 Let ev’ry soul from near and from far
Follow the rays of Bethlehem’s star,
Till it shall shine o’er Calvary’s tree,
Wonderful love for thee and me. [Refrain]
