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 on whom the Spirit rested
lived as one who cared for all;
by the watching crowds attested:
'This man has done all things well!'
God's own grace
on his face
blessing us with heavenly peace.

2 Swift the promised Spirit filled them:
rushing wind ad tongues of flame;
now the master's presence thrilled them,
made them bold to preach his name,
bringing light,

with your help the eek inherit

4 Spirit of the Son and Father,
come to us with power today!
every life in fulness enter,
all your gifts in us set free:
all our days
let us raise
songs of gratitude and praise!
