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 Der Engel zu Maria kömmt,
und ihr die fröhlich' Botschaft bringt:
sie soll empfahen und gebar'n
Jesum den wahren Gott und Herrn.

2 Maria des verwundert sich,
der Engel giebt ihr den Bericht,
das solch's in ihr der Heilig' Geist
verrichten werd' auf sonder Weis'.

3 Herr Jesu, der Du uns zu gut
hast angenommen Fleisch und Blut,
ach hilf! daß wir theilhaftig sein
der theuren großen Wohlthat Dein.

4 Errett' uns von Sünd, Höll' und Tod,
erhalt' uns fest in aller Noth:
Hilf durch die zarte Menschheit Dein,
daß wir mög'n ewig bei Dir sein.
