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. Dear Savior, thro’ the far-spent night
We wait and watch for Thee;
The light of earth for us has set
Behind dark Calvary.

2. We yearn to see the rosy dawn
Whose promise beams afar;
And ever, with expectant hearts,
Desire the Morning Star.

3. Oh dawn most fair! Oh day most bright!
Across the eastern sky
The Advent-glory soon shall break—
Redemption draweth nigh.

4. It may be sooner than we think
Shall end the long delay!
It may be that the Bridegroom-King
E’en now is on His way!

Author: Lucy A. Bennett
