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 let us sing of homeland,
Down by the crystal sea;
Wonderful land where Jesus
Buildeth a mansion for me.

Refrain:
Over yonder,
Down by the crystal sea,
Over yonder,
There’s where I long to be;
No more sorrow, toil, grief, nor care,
In that homeland bright and fair,
Over, over there.

2 There is a wondrous city,
Streets of transparent gold;
Not half its glorious beauty
Has e’er to mortals been told. [Refrain]

3 Water of life there floweth,
Fruit in abundant store;
Citizens of that country
Hunger and thirst nevermore. [Refrain]

4 Come go with me to homeland,
Jesus invites you there;
Help spread the invitation,
Tell it to men everywhere. [Refrain]
