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.

Du siegend Haupt, dort in der Herrlichkeit

Representative Text

1 Du siegend Haupt, dort in der Herrlichkeit,
Mit Ehr' und Ruhm gekrönt!
Du schaust herab, erblickst uns hier im Streit,
Siehst, wie die Welt uns höhnt.
Doch kämpfen wir hienieden,
Dein Arm stärkt uns im Streit,
Wir ruhn in Deinem Frieden,
Von Sünd' und Tod befreit.

2 Zieh uns hinauf, der Du die Stätte dort
Für uns bereit gemacht.
Wir schaun empor zu jenem sel'gen Ort,
Wohin wir bald gebracht.
Wir werden nie verderben,
Weil wir Geliebte sind.
Wir werden mit Dir erben,
Wenn wir vollendet sind.
