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.

1 Easter flowers, Easter carols
Deck the altar, fill the air;
Glorious dawns the happy morning
O'er a world so bright and fair.
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

2 When the clouds of night were broken,
Angels rolled the stone away,
And on this bright Easter morning
Sing we now the triumph lay.
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

3 In the mists of early morning,
Came the faithful to the tomb,
Angel guardians clad in white robes,
Sat there in the breaking gloom.
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

4 "He is risen!" thus the angel
Spake unto the faithful three,
"He is risen" wondrous story,
"He has gone to Galilee."
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

5 Now the clouds of night are broken,
Mortals now the story tell,
"He is risen! Alleluia!"
Let the joyful anthem swell.
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King.
