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

Merry, merry, merry, merry, Christmas bells,
O sweetly, sweetly chime;
Let your sweetest music on the breezes swell,
O merry, merry, Christmas time.

1 Christ is born, and He is king,
Let all the earth and angels sing;
While all our hearts and voices blend,
In this our glad refrain; O, [Refrain]

2 Banish every thought of care,
Let mirth and music fill the air;
Our hearts are full of love and joy,
There’s naught can us annoy. O, [Refrain]

3 We are happy, bright, and free,
And we will sing of merry glee;
So come and join us in our song,
And help the mirth along; O, [Refrain]
