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 Cheerily hail the Christmas morn,
Carol a tuneful lay;
Welcome the infant Savior born,
Greet Him with joy today.

Refrain:
Merrily now the bells we hear,
Chiming in chorus sweet and clear,
Gather and sing, gather and sing,
Welcome the children’s King.

2 Wonderful song of holy mirth,
Sweeping along the sky;
Glory to God, and peace on earth,
Glory to God on high. [Refrain]

3 Over the world good news proclaim,
Heralds of love, away;
Jesus the Lord has come to reign,
Tell it with joy today. [Refrain]
