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, see the place where Jesus lay;
Believe, and cast thy fears away:
For thee He lives; for thee He died;
Lives thee to bless, lives thee to guide.
Hallelujah!

2 Oh tell to Him thy every grief:
He lives to yield thine ills relief—
To close in death thy wearied eyes,
And lift thy spirit to the skies.
Hallelujah!

3 Oh come; let us together sing
The triumph of our heavenly king:
The Lord is risen, to die no more:
O earth! O Heaven! your God adore.
Hallelujah!
