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 the Savior is here,
Let the world with welcome ring;
Praises sound far and near,
For the advent of the King.

Refrain:
Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her king;
Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room,
And Heav’n and nature sing,
And Heav’n and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

2 Christ the Shepherd of souls,
Our Redeemer and our Lord,
Heav’n its monarch extols,
And proclaims His birth abroad. [Refrain]

3 Christ, exalted above,
Now begins His glorious reign.
Ev’ry heart is His throne,
And the earth is His domain. [Refrain]
