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. Come, children; raise your voices!
The King of Love comes from above,
The heavenly host rejoices.

2. The Babe lies in the manger;
God seeks His own, by angels known,
But unto men a stranger.

3. Though weak and helpless lying,
From Him is giv’n through earth and Heav’n
New life, and peace undying.

4. But who on earth do greet Him?
A shepherd band with staff in hand
Sets forth by night to meet Him.

5. And lo! from eastward riding
The wise men three; the star they see,
And follow it confiding.

6. Oh, hope of all the ages!
May we find grace to claim our place
Where shepherds kneel and sages.
