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. Echoes of glory are ringing
Down thro’ the gates so fair;
News of sweet rest they are bringing,
To hearts that are weary with care.

Oh! Echoes of glory
From angels so fair,
List to the music,
That floats on the air.

2. Echoes of glory are sweetly
Coming to cheer the weak,
Filling the soul thus completely,
With love that the sorrowing seek. [Refrain]

3. Echoes of glory come ever
Telling of rest at last,
When we shall cross o’er the river,
And life with its turmoil is past. [Refrain]
