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 Christ is born! and heavenly glory
Shines on Bethlehem’s darkened sky;
Christ is born! O joyful story!
Man’s redemption draweth nigh.

2 "Christ is born!" the herald angel
Sings the anthem sweet and clear,
"Christ is born!" the bright evangel
Sings, while wondering shepherds hear.

3 “Christ is born! peace, joy, and blessing
Welcome news to all I bring;
Christ is born, all love possessing,
Jesus, Son of God, is King!

4 "Christ is born! and in a manger
They the holy Babe have laid;
Christ is born! the heavenly stranger
You shall find, be not afraid."

5 "Christ is born!" the host of Heaven
Hovering over Judah’s plain,
"Christ is born! Messiah given!"
Loud they sing the glad refrain.

6 Christ is born, the Savior, glorious,
Comes to suffer, comes to die;
Christ is born to live victorious,
Born to reign eternally.
