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.

1 Christmas bells are ringing,
Ringing, ringing,
Happy children singing,
Christ is born.
In the manger lowly
Lay the Christ child holy,
Angels singing, shepherds bringing,
Love and praise.

2 While the star shone o’er Him,
O’er Him, o’er Him,
Wise men knelt before Him
Where He lay.
Forth they brought their treasure,
Wealth beyond our measure,
With hearts glowing, all bestowing,
Hail Him king!

3 Gold and myrrh they brought Him,
Brought Him, brought Him,
Bearing gifts they sought Him,
Far they came.
Now, while bells are ringing,
We, too, presents bringing,
Bow before Him, low adore Him,
Crown Him king.
